Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Reduce Number of Members of the House of Lords Before Reducing Number of MPs — 9 Feb 2011 at 20:50

The majority of members of the House of Lords voted not to reduce the number of MPs until the number of members of the House of Lords has been capped.

The House of Lords was considering the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill[1]. The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment 30A : Clause 18, page 15, line 34, at end insert-
  • "( ) Section 11 shall not come into force until legislation has been introduced into either House of Parliament limiting the number of members of the House of Lords."

Clause 11 of the Bill[2]; which would have become Section 11 of the resultant act, at the time of the vote sought to reduce the number of MPs from 650 to 600 and set out rules for reforms to constituency boundaries.
