The House of Lords is the upper house of British Parliament, which is made up of the King or Queen of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. It is the most famous and oldest aristocratic chamber, but saw its power decline over time with the installation of democracy.

A recent reform dated November 11, 1999, had profoundly transformed. Philippe Ardant, in his textbook, ?Constitutional Law and Political Institutions?, said that this reform has transformed the composition of the chamber without affecting its functions.

We will analyze if his statement is right. We will examine this reform and the consequences for the composition and also the functions of the room. We will also see how the reform changes the composition of the House of Lords and the reasons for the same.

It is also important to analyze if it does not directly affect its functions and pose particular questions about the future of this house.
