The Government's latest attempts to reform the House of Lords coincide with a number of significant anniversaries of previous attempts. This article notes the Secretary of State for Justice's adoption of the 100th anniversary of the Parliament Act 1911 as a target to get the reform legislation through, examines what can be learnt from those previous attempts and suggests that the debate over election versus appointment may involve a false dichotomy.
