Downing Street has confirmed a rapid review of the House of Lords will take place in the wake of the Government's tax credits defeat.
A statement from Downing Street said:
The Government is setting up a review to examine how to protect the ability of elected Governments to secure their business in Parliament.
The review would consider in particular how to secure the decisive role of the elected House of Commons in relation to (i) its primacy on financial matters; and (ii) secondary legislation.
The review will be led by Lord Strathclyde, supported by a small panel of experts.
They are not there to interfere with the settled will of the House of Commons, warned Boris Johnson.
A working mum who would be hit by Tax Credit cuts spoke to ITV News ahead of the House of Lords vote on the changes.
Peers will have to decide whether to delay changes to the tax credits bill, review them or scrap it altogether.
