Boris Johnson could move the House of Lords to York, a senior Tory has confirmed.
House Of Lords Could Move To York Under Boris Johnsons Plans
Party chairman James Cleverly said moving the upper chamber out of London was “one of a range of things” the government was looking into to ensure voters “feel properly connected” to politics.
The government has already identified disused government-owned land near York railway station as a potential site for a new Lords chamber, the Sunday Times reported.
Birmingham is also in the running as a location as the prime minister looks to cement the Tories’ election gains in former Labour areas in the north and Midlands."We might, it's one of a range of things we are looking into." @JamesCleverly tells @SophyRidgeSky the House of Lords might be permanently moved to the north of England, saying a "whole range of options" are being looked at.

“When the PM stood up the day after the election and said this is going to be the people’s government he meant it. That meant connecting people with government and politics.
“The referendum in 2016 wasn’t just about our relationship with the EU, it was about millions of people and their relationship with politics as a whole.”
When pressed to say if the move would happen, he replied: “We might. It’s one of a range of things that we are looking into. But fundamentally what this is about is about demonstrating that we are going to do things differently.”
The potential location of the new Lords will be determined by a constitutional review to be launched in the coming months, the Sunday Times reported.
The government is also said to be considering plans to replace the unelected Lords with at least a partially elected chamber representing Britain’s nations and regions.Related...
