The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 81

The Lords Must Go!

The Lords Must Go!

The substance of this historical narrative first appeared in germ in 1882 under the title of "Fifty Years of the House' of Lords." In 1894 it was reprinted, with additions, after Mr. Gladstone had publicly recommended it in his last speech in the House of Commons as having left on the mind of every Liberal the painful but firm conviction that the case of the House of Lords was grievously unsatisfactory. In 1906 it was largely rewritten, and published by Mr. Fisher Unwin in a half-crown volume under the title of "Peers or People? an appeal to History." The narrative has now been brought up to date, and is issued as an historical vade mecum for writers, speakers and voters at the General Election.
