House of Lords Bill — Second Reading — 2 Feb 1999

The majority Aye voters agreed to give the House of Lords Bill its Second Reading. A Second Reading allows a Bill to move onto the Committee Stage.

The main intention of the House of Lords Bill was to abolish the hereditary peers who sit within the Lords.

Eventually this Bill became law on 11th November 1999. However, a compromise was agreed between Tony Blair and the Leader of the Conservative Party in the House of Lords, Viscount Cranborne, where 92 hereditary peers could still remain in the Lords.
