The Chairman of Committees (Lord Boston of Faversham): My Lords, the original Question was that this Bill be now read a second time since when an amendment has been moved, at end to insert "but this House regrets that the Bill radically alters the historic composition of the House of Lords for party political advantage, without consultation or consensus on the successor House's role and composition and without making it more democratic". The Question is that the amendment be agreed to.

2.55 a.m.

On Question, Whether the said amendment shall be agreed to?

Their Lordships divided: Contents, 192; Not-Contents, 126.
