Open Letter for a Citizens' Parliament on Lords Reform

Citizens' ParliamentWe, the undersigned, urge the government to introduce and support legislation to constitute and empower a 650-member Citizens' Parliament on House of Lords Reform. This randomly selected, representative sample of citizens should research, consult widely, deliberate on, and develop a proposal to reform the House of Lords, which would then be put to a national referendum.

The Citizens' Parliament should consider the following options for reform of the House of Lords:

  1. Replacement with a fully elected Senate,
  2. Replacement with a fully appointed Senate,
  3. Replacement with a fully allotted Senate,
  4. Some combination of the above three options, or
  5. Its abolition.
