    not when considering executive dominance over parliament.

    Well considering firstly that the executive produce government bill such as the notification of withdrawal act 2017, and are successful 90% due to controlling the parliamentary timetable, the Salisbury convention is more suitable because you can justify that the lords wouldn’t vote against a mandated policy from a manifesto due to them not holding positions as legitimately as the MPs due to MPs being elected representatives, the 1911 and 1949 act limit the lords control on areas such as monetary policies which start in the commons that are initiated by the chancellor of the exchequer, as well the 1949 act allows commons bills to bypass the lords if a bill is defeated for one year later, so in theory yes the executive is justifiably dominant because of the acts
