EDM number 610 in 2000-01, proposed by Gordon Prentice on 26/04/2001.

That this House is dismayed that the list of people's peers published on 26th April contains for example no lollipop or dinner ladies, no shop assistants or factory workers or bus drivers; questions the point of the four regional roadshows organised by the House of Lords Appointments Commission designed to encourage applications from a wide range of people when, contrary to the Government's stated objective, those appointed will not make the Lords more representative of the UK as a whole; considers, in the light of this, the term people's peer to be a misnomer; believes the Commission's procedures are not open or transparent; and urges the Government to review the entire policy of appointing people's peers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 47 MPs.
