The campaign for an elected second chamber, with no life appointments to allow the House of Lords to fulfil the function it is supposed to fill.
Unlock Democracy actively campaigns to replace the House of Lords with a democratic second chamber of parliament. We want a second chamber elected in halves for 8-10 year terms, using STV or an Open List systems. We want a reduction in size to between 250 to 350 members and we don’t want Lords to be Government Ministers.
Over 1000 people who have taken up the cause and called on David Cameron to end this undemocratic farce. This is a great start to putting pressure on the Prime Minister. Can you help us double the numbers writing to David Cameron?
