Follow this EDM by:


That this House notes the election to replace the 10th Earl of Walpole to be held on 18 July 2017; further notes that only 31 electors can take part in this election and that there are 10 candidates; notes that the hereditary principle holds no place in a modern democracy; declares that the UK should finally abolish the 92 hereditary peers from the House of Lords; and notes that the by-election process of hereditary peers is risible as it meas that a small constituency of hereditary peers can elevate a peer to produce laws and question Ministers without any say by the British public.
