THE HOUSE OF LORDS

when one party is in power. Thirdly, for the function of pure revision, a committee of drafting experts and of lawyers is far more effective than a large assembly.
The second argument for an upper chamber is that it provides an opportunity for those who are not able or willing to enter the Commons through the strife of the electoral process to be used in the business of government. Clearly there are such people. Clearly also the elder statesman may have something to contribute to national counsels even after his retirement. The principle of co-option to committees in local government, or of the election of aldermen, is an expression of this need. There seems no reason why it should not be applied with advantage in national government, provided that those who enter in this way are in a subordinate and advisory position. Some of them might even be allowed to be included in a government, as are members of the House of Lords to-day.
A new House of Lords Act to implement such a principle might contain the following provisions:

(1) The House of Lords shall consist of persons, to be known
as Lords of Parliament, who shall be elected by the House of Commons during the first month of the first session of each
Parliament. They shall hold office until Parliament is dissolved.
(2) Every party in the House of Commons shall have the right
to elect Lords of Parliament of a number vqual to half its membership of the House of Commons.
(3) The Speaker shall determine the method of election
