The Cost of The House of Lords

According to Jack Straw, responding to a Parliamentary Question, the annual cost of the House of Lords in 2005/6 was £68 563 000, down from £118 827 000 the previous year. That's a lot of money that could be spent on Interactive Democracy, which doesn't require the "higher house" in order to maintain a two tier political system.
