This purpose of this paper is to explore the political relevance of parliamentary upper houses. The paper attempts to give both a definitive definition of political relevance and to determine if upper chambers meet this definition. To do this the example of the British House of Lords, a hallmark example of weak upper chambers, is used as a case study.
