Lib Dem peers top the rankings in confidential House of Lords report

A confidential report seen by the Independent on Sunday shows that Liberal Democrat peers are the most hard-working members of the House of Lords.

I’ve previously blogged about how poor the Conservative attendance record is in the Lords (here and here), and this new report also finds that Conservative peers are the least likely to turn up of the main parties.

According to the report, Liberal Democrats attended 71% of sitting days, whilst Labour peers managed 68% and the Conservatives a paltry 56%. The People’s Peers themselves were the worst offenders though on 45%.
