New Member joins Lords

29 July 2010

Conservative life Peer Lord Faulks took his seat in the House of Lords following a short introduction ceremony at the beginning of business on Wednesday 28 July. The House of Lords rose for summer recess at the end of business and will sit again on Tuesday 5 October.

This introduction is the latest to take place among new life Peers whose membership was announced in May.

The introduction ceremony must take place in the Lords Chamber before each new Member is able to take their seat in the House.

During the ceremony, new Members either swear an oath or solemnly affirm their allegiance to the Queen; they also sign an undertaking to abide by the House of Lords Code of Conduct.
