Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech — 2 Dec 2003 at 22:00

Debate resumed on the Motion moved on Wednesday last by the Lord Ashley of Stoke-namely, That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty as follows:

"Most Gracious Sovereign-We, Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, beg leave to thank Your Majesty for the most gracious Speech which Your Majesty has addressed to both Houses of Parliament."

rose to move, as an amendment to the Motion for an humble Address, at the end of the Address to insert "but regrets the decision of Your Majesty's Government to abandon the search for cross-party consensus on constitutional reform and to launch unilateral proposals for changes to this House that could gravely weaken the House; and calls on Your Majesty's Government to respect the formal undertakings given to this House, to withdraw their current proposals and to undertake meaningful consultation with Parliament and the senior judiciary before proceeding with legislation."

On Question, Whether the said amendment shall be agreed to?

Their Lordships divided: Contents, 188; Not-Contents, 108.
