Cole-Hamilton: Tory lord reports show system is outdated and undemocratic

Responding to the reports that Conservative MEP Ian Duncan is set to be made a member of the House of Lords enabling him to be assigned to the Scotland Office, Scottish Liberal Democrat MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton said: 

“Theresa May obviously doesn’t have a lot of faith in the talents of her newly elected Scottish MPs if she is so keen to pass them over. 

“More importantly though this highlights the flawed and out-dated processes that still sit at the heart of our democracy.

“Scottish Liberal Democrats believe that the undemocratic and unrepresentative House of Lords should be abolished.”
