House of Lords demecratic reform referendum

Additional Information

The House of Lords should be a fully elected upper house of Parliament immediately.
There should be a referendum as soon as possible to decide the constitutional status of the House of Lords. The question should ask whether the people would like a fully elected house or not.
If the House of Lords is made a fully elected chamber of the parliament the new house should have extended powers with respect to finances, budget, taxation, criminal and civil law in general, the import of law from the European Union and parliamentary regulation.
The new house should be elected every 5 years in the middle of the present term of the House of Commons and this should be a fixed date that cannot be decided by parliament unless under exceptional circumstances.
