Default The Lord Speaker

after the horrible reform of the House of Lords...the Chancellor who used to chair the debates, was replaced by the new position of "Lord Speaker" so that they were pretty much in line with the Speaker of The Commons.

The first Speaker has nearly finished her Tenure...and has decided not to stand for re-ellection.

This is a video from her
