Asked whether the PM agreed that Lords reform was not a top priority, the PMS said that the PM had already said that it was not a top priority. The top priority for the Government was dealing with the economic challenges we currently faced.
Asked whether there were plans to have fewer elected Lords or if the Government was going to make similar concessions, the PMS said that there was nothing specific to report and that the Government would be discussing its plans in the coming weeks as it sought to build consensus.
Asked whether there would be a new timetable in the autumn, the PMS said there would be.
Asked whether the PM was confident in winning over Lords reform rebels, the PMS said that the PM believed that people who supported House of Lords reform should come together to make it happen.
