Elected senate would replace House of Lords under Labour

Labour would replace the House of Lords with an elected senate if the party won next May's general election, party leader Ed Miliband has said.

He told a conference in Blackpool on Saturday the current system "fails to represent large parts of the UK".

Senators would be elected from Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the English regions instead of from constituencies like MPs.
