It would need someone with a deeper legal background than me to explain the Parliament Acts in detail, but my understanding that whereas previously the Lords could veto certain bills, they can now delay them for up to three sessions.

In the context of a time-limited Brexit negotiation, that delay could have the same effect as a veto, I think. As I say, it really someone with much deeper knowledge of the law than I have.

"For myself I think they serve a useful function, but must never be allowed to circumvent the will of the Commons."

2The Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949 are two Acts of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, which form part of the constitution of the United Kingdom. Section 2(2) of the Parliament Act 1949 provides that the two Acts are to be construed as one.

The Parliament Act 1911 asserted the supremacy of the House of Commons by limiting the legislation-blocking powers of the House of Lords (the suspensory veto). Provided the provisions of the Act are met, legislation can be passed without the approval of the House of Lords.
The Parliament Acts have been used to pass legislation against the wishes of the House of Lords on seven occasions since 1911, including the passing of the Parliament Act 1949. Some constitutional lawyers had questioned the validity of the 1949 Act. These doubts were rejected in 2005 when members of the Countryside Alliance unsuccessfully challenged the validity of the Hunting Act 2004, which had been passed under the auspices of the Act. In October 2005, the Appellate Committee of the House of Lords dismissed the Alliance's appeal against this decision, with an unusually large panel of nine Law Lords (out of then-existing twelve) holding that the 1949 Act was a valid Act of Parliament."

Lord Kerr's summing up before the division was extremely witty and one section related to Keith's last post:

"I ought to pay tribute to my past—my various masters from the past—who are marking my homework so harshly. I owe the noble Lord, Lord Lawson, an apology. I am sure that he explained to the country at large the truth about the customs union and that he did it every day, morning, noon and night, but I am not sure that the country was listening. What I remember is the man who is now the Foreign Secretary telling the country, “Nobody is even talking about leaving the single market”. He published that the day after the referendum, having said it throughout the referendum campaign. So I exonerate the noble Lord—I have to; he was my boss.

Yes it was. Both sides clearly stated that Leave meant leaving the Customs Union.

I wonder where your insistence that elected MPs should decide will be if this (non binding) vote does support a customs union.

I do not think they should subvert the decision of the referendum either, but if they do they may be punished by their constituents. The Lords face no such threat.

I was signatory eight hundred and something of Charter88, which included reform of the House of Lords amongst its objectives, so I have questioned the structure since at least 1988 as a matter of record. Of course saying you want to change something and agreeing what you want to change it to are very different things (as everyone on this thread should appreciate!)

Nevertheless what it is doing now is precisely in line with its remit.

I agree with all the arguments that have been put forward for putting the question to the country once the implications of any deal are known - except that I don't think that referendums are ever a good idea anyway. The country is - as it should be - ruled by parliament and the Lords get to have a say but can't ultimately scupper the will of the Commons. I like that notion in principle but there are too many peers, too many old peers, not enough women in the Lords and I think that all peers should be appointed to reflect what this country would regard as accomplishment at the highest level in all walks of life and should reflect the whole political spectrum. Definitely NOT elected. One election for one house every few years is enough for the country. An election for the Lords would attract a low turnout and that would be self-defeating as far as any democratic apiration for an elected Lords was concerned.

One thing's for sure: the notion suggested here that it's only the remainers in parliament who form a "ruling elite" of some kind who act only in their own interests is utterly cockeyed.

The in-elected Lords have never been allowed to over-rule the elected Commons


Depends how you think of it. The Lords is a revising chamber and it is absolutely the norm and their role to suggest changes to bills. If the commons accept the change then it is little more than linguistic juggling whether the change is over ruling the commons original proposal and the commons is conceding or the commons is always the House that agrees the final form of the bill.

Which will be exactly the same this tim3 however it ends up.

DMcG, there is a majority for Remain in both Commons and Lords.
They are the ruling elite who put their own interests above those of the people they supposedly represent.

The difference is that MPs need to be re elected but the Lords never have to answer to the people.

Nigel, you asked if it was news. It was. The news was that a think tank considered that every scenario would leave Britain worse off. Whether you chose to believe the think tank is irrelevant. The news is that was their findings

From the link you posted, the think tank considered nothing. They merely reported the thoughts of a lone professor. Passing the thoughts of that professor through a think tank, and then through a newspaper, does not mean there is any reason to give those thoughts any more credence than when they were the thoughts of a single professor.

I didn't know you needed spoon feeding, Nigel. It is real news in a real newspaper. Just look at my posting a little earlier for the linK.

Yes, that was what I was commenting on. The opinion of one man, (Jonathan Portes) commissioned by a 'thinktank' (Global Future) and published in The Guardian on its News pages as if it has been a considered production by 'Global Future'. At least, that is how I would read the headline they gave it:

Each Brexit scenario will leave Britain worse off, study finds
Global Future finds Theresa May’s preferred bespoke deal would cost £615m a week


Compare that with the paragraphs describing exactly what they are basing their headlines on:
Each of the government’s four Brexit scenarios, including a bespoke deal, would leave Britain poorer and cost the taxpayer hundreds of millions of pounds each week, analysis has shown.
The study for the thinktank Global Future by Jonathan Portes, a professor of economics and public policy at King’s College, London, found that a bespoke deal, the government’s preferred option, would have a net negative fiscal impact of about £40bn a year.


It appears that 'Project Fear' has not yet given up.

The Lords are an integral part of Parliament. Vote for supremacy of Parliament over Brussels and that's what you get: all of Parliament not just the bits you like.

By and large, reform of the House of Lords is something "the left" argue for, and "the right" argue against. I am fairly confident most Rees Mogg pronouncements on the Lords will be in support of it as is, unless his recent idea to neuter it by making 200 new Lords to force his personal view of Brexit through.

The Lib Dems, the only pro Remain party, were wiped out in the election but use their many peers to exert influence they have no mandate for.

BBC, "And Lord Forsyth went further, suggesting that it was a plot by "Remainers in this House, who are the majority, who refuse to accept the verdict of the British people - and I believe they are playing with fire".
"I say to colleagues in this House, 'Have a care to what we are doing,'" he said. "We are an unelected house, and this amendment [is] part of a campaign which is putting peers against the people." "

BREAKING Government defeated on continued EU-UK customs union
EU Withdrawal Bill

House of Lords

Parliament

Peers vote 348 to 225 to back an amendment in the name of crossbencher, Lord Kerr, with cross-party support - meaning a defeat for the government.

The amendment requires the government to report to Parliament by 31 October 2018 on the steps it has taken to negotiate continued participation in a UK-EU customs union before the European Communities Act 1972 can be repealed.

In truth, this seems to be something the government thinks it can live with via a simple technicality. It remains to see what will happen when it gets back to the commons.

Would that be a catastrophe? Then if that is a catastrophe just how would you rate the drop of about 17 full cents just after the Brexit vote?
