Relationship with the Government
Only those who are Wellmoorean Peers may be members of the House of Lords.

The House of Lords and the House of Commons assemble in the Houses of Parliament, located in Midnight City (Wellmoore's Capital).
The Lords Chamber is the site of many formal ceremonies.
In the House of Lords, members need not seek the recognition of the presiding officer before speaking, as is done in the House of Ministers. If two or more Lords simultaneously rise to speak, the House decides which one is to be heard by vote. Speeches in the House of Lords are addressed to the House as a whole ("My Lords") rather than to the presiding officer alone. Members may not refer to each other in the second person (as "you"), but rather use third person forms such as "the Noble Duke", "the Noble Earl", "the Noble Lord", "my Noble Friend", etc.
