Dr. Meg Russell, Constitution Unit, University College London
What will the House of Lords look like post-election? More importantly, what is it likely to do in the medium term? If peers can resign, will they shake up the constitution still further? Dr Meg Russell, from the Constitution Unit, University College London, explores the implications of current debates; and, in particular, the Bill currently in front of the House.
