New Lib Dem peer Christine Humphreys wants elected second chamber

There are now more Welsh Liberal Democrat members of the House of Lords in London - six - than there are currently in the Senedd in Cardiff Bay - five.

Former North Wales assembly member Christine Humphreys became the latest Welsh Lib Dem to be admitted last week when her appointment was announced alongside that of the former Welsh Conservative leader, Nick Bourne.

She told Vaughan Roderick on Sunday Supplement on BBC Radio Wales she was delighted but still looked forward to the day when there would be a reformed House of Lords.
