    This bill would have more substance if it removed Lords Temporal from the Upper House (do we still have those?). As I understand it, it does not.

    It does not.

    Understand that I did not expect this bill to have even a fraction of the support it did, based on what I've heard of similar bills being entered into the House in the past.
    Fair enough. So as it stands it's really no more than a symbolic gesture (albeit one I support). If no action has been taken on Lords Reform since the Great Repeal - I recall Labour trying unsuccessfully over the last few terms - perhaps it's time to get drafting once more.
