The constitution of Britain is changing rapidly, and the House of Lords is next on the agenda for reform. But whilst Britain takes on many of the features of other countries' constitutions, the Lords reform debate remains insular and backward-looking. This book provides an international context, using material as yet unpublished in the UK. What can we learn from the appointed Canadian Senate, the elected Australian Senate, the German federal Bundesrat, or our other European neighbours? This book opens up the debate.
