Chancellor George Osborne said the Government would "cross any issues with the boundary vote when we get to them": He said:
"We have not been able to proceed on Lords reform, frankly, because there is opposition in Parliament and the opportunism of the Labour Party would not allow the time for the House of Lords Bill.
I think we have got to use this moment as an opportunity to focus 110% on the economy - which is what the country wants."
Nick Clegg says plans to reform the House of Lords will be abandoned after the coalition contract was "broken" by the Conservatives.
David Cameron may be set to abandon proposed reform to the House of Lords. The Liberal Democrats will be bitterly disappointed.
