How many Lords does the south-west have?

“The South West has slightly too many peers.

8 percent of the population live in the South West and 9 percent of the House of Lords own their main home there.

But, that’s only from the 564 Lords that declared where they live – we don’t even know where 252 are from.

London and the South East on the other hand make up a shocking 44 percent of the chamber on just 26 percent of the population.

While London is over-represented, 11% of the public live in the North West – but only 5% of peers live there.”
