The Lords Chamber Event

The winter 2014 edition of the Royal British Legion Magazine reported this event where 146 cadets and 46 veterans gathered together for this annual event where non-members of the Lords are invited to debate in the Chamber.

This was organised by the House in partnership with the Royal British Legion, The English Speaking Union, Air Cadets, Army Cadets and Sea Cadets in November 2013.

This marks the upcoming Centenary of World War One and is only the seventh time in history that non-members of the Lords have been given the opportunity to debate in the House. The veterans taking part were all invited by the Legion.
