Labour Party and Liberal Democrats: Peers

Question for Cabinet Office

UIN HL13422, tabled on 22 February 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord True on 11 February (HL12711), what is their assessment of the equivalent figures for (1) the Labour, and (2) the Liberal Democrat, Party when following a similar methodology to the one used to determine underrepresentation of the Conservative Party in the House of Lords.

Based on that methodology, my assessment is that the Liberal Democrat Party, in particular, is significantly over-represented in the House of Lords.
