Lord Hunt of Kings Heath on Lords Reform
This was the speech that Lord Hunt made introducing the short debate on Lords Reform.
He begins by paying tribute to Lord Acton, who was an active member of the House of Lords - and would attend regularly, despite living in Iowa. He took a keen interest in both British and US Politics. Other members of the House of Lords were saddened to hear of his death, and I took was very sorry to learn of the death of a lovely man.
