Federal Executive will return to Interim Peers Panel elections issue

Back in July I covered the news that the Federal Executive (FE) was cancelling this autumn’s elections to the Liberal Democrat Interim Peers Panel.

Here is what the FE’s report to the Autumn Liberal Democrat Conference in Brighton says on the matter:

The Committee came to the decision that given the current passage through Parliament of legislation for an elected House of Lords, we would postpone this year’s elections and extend the panels elected in 2008 and 2010. Given recent developments, this matter will be revisited by FE in the near future.

Most likely, that will include consideration of changes to the way the Interim Peers Panel works, with proposals being put to the Spring 2013 conference.
