NotesNews: ".... Mr Clegg was heckled by Tory backbenchers as he unveiled the plans at the beginning of a two-day debate on the reforms. He told the Commons that there was an "unsustainable status quo" in the Upper Chamber, adding that, despite exercising real power, the current set-up meant that the Lords was able to offer its members a job for life. "This Bill, by creating a more legitimate House of Lords, gives it more authority to hold governments to account, a greater check on executive power," he said. ... " Christopher Hope, Daily Telegraph
