List the Against arguments
Specialist Knowledge, Complementary Chambers, Dangers of Partisanship & Descriptive Representation
1 of 5
Specialist Knowledge
Appointed peers can be chosen on the basis of their experience,expertise and specialist knowledge. Elected politicians may only be specialists in the art of public speaking and campaigning
2 of 5
Complementary Chambers
Advantage of 2 chambers is that they can carry out different roles and functions. The HofL can be seen as the revising chamber, complementing the HofC. Only one chamber needs to express popular authority
3 of 5
Dangers of Partisanship
any elected chamber is going to be dominated by parties. An appointed chamber would reduce partisanship and allow peers to think for themself
4 of 5
Descriptive Representation
Elected peers may have popular authority but it is difficult to make sure they resemble larger society. This can be better done through appointment
