Labour Peers address issues affecting the lives of people both in the UK and around the world, and complement the work of MP colleagues in the Commons. 


Our Peers scrutinise legislation by using wide-ranging skills and expertise from all sectors, trade unions, academia, business and the arts. Many remain active in their professional fields.


Our Peers embody Labour's values of social justice, equal opportunity and fairness for all. They show political leadership by constructively trying to improve legislation, and by working to build support across the House.  


Our Peers work closely with NGOs and charities with first-hand experience of what is happening on the front line of public services and in the wider world. 


Labour Peers campaign on a broad range of issues. Whether at weekends or during elections and by-elections, many of our people will be out making the case on behalf of our Party's candidates.
