Three ministerial aides could quit over Lords reform
The Prime Minister has been warned to expect “off the scale” rebellions if he pushes ahead with controversial plans to replace the House of Lords with an elected senate.
The warnings – made at a private meeting of Tory MPs last night - come ahead of the publication on Monday of an official report from a major Lords committee which has considered the proposals.
The Daily Telegraph has learned that at least three parliamentary private secretaries (PPS) are likely to vote against the plans if they go ahead.
