David Cameron to ban House of Lords from overturning legislation ~ Laura Hughes, THE TELEGRAPH, 07 Dec 2015.

Lord Strathclyde has been instructed by the Prime Minister to look at curbing the powers of the second chamber.

The Tory grandee appointed by David Cameron to review the role of the House of Lords will propose that hostile peers should be banned from overturning legislation.

Lord Strathclyde has been instructed by the Prime Minister to look at curbing the powers of the second chamber, after peers voted to block George Osborne’s plan to cut tax credits.

The chair of the review into the second chamber will suggest the increasingly hostile anti-Tory majority should lose their veto over delegated or secondary legislation, as it poses a threat to the Prime Minister’s legislative plans.
