From: Lord Hailsham

13 June, 1990.

Dear Mr Date,

Thank you for yr: letter.

I fear I am sitting now at the other end of the Chamber from the Bishops, and so cannot communicate with them (really or even fictionally).

I shd: be sorry if the present House were interfered with. If the Commons did interfere and made a second Chamber which was elected they would be making a rod for their own backs.

Yrs: sincerely:
