The rise of the Lords?

25 April 2013 – Ceremony marks end of parliamentary year

As the Parliamentary year ended, this very short article highlights some of the opposition the Lords has shown to the Commons this year. Thinking about how the Coalition has changed the relationship between Government and Parliament, does this demonstrate that the Lords are getting stronger? Or is it simply a ‘blip’, that will disappear if we were delivered a single party government in the future? Great example of the Lords rejecting a bill in here.
