This chapter begins with a discussion of the events leading to the attempted abolition of the House of Lords. It also describes Lord Selborne' Supreme Court of Judicature Act in 1873, Lord Cairn's honour, and the Act of 1876 which not only preserved and improved the Law Lords but breathed some new life into their House with the introduction of judicial peerages.
