Replace current House of Lords with an elected House of Lords based around the traditional counties (Will equal just over 100 lords) and remove the Lords Spiritual. New House of Lords led by Lord Chancellor (Leader of biggest party in House of Lords)

 

If fixed term parliaments are introduced have the election for the Lord's in the middle of the Commons terms

Why is this idea important?

Just over 100 directly Elected Lords chosen by the people from the traditional counties would be a system that could not be abused by boundary changes.

Lord Spirituals should be removed to show that no particular religious institution has direct power in Government
