Labour pledges to scrap the House of Lords

The Labour Party has said it will scrap the House of Lords and replace it with a democratically elected chamber, if it wins the next election.

Jeremy Corbyn's spokesman said Mr Corbyn will not appoint any Labour peers that do not support abolishing the House of Lords.

Mr Corbyn's spokesperson added "It's absurd that we still have this undemocratic anachronism in the 21st century and when Labour is elected we will carry through that pledge."

New surveys show most voters support reform of the House Of Lords - would you support a new democratically elected house?
