The Electoral Reform Society Cymru has reacted to the naming of two new Welsh members of the House of Lords - both former AMs - by calling for a cut in the size of the Upper Chamber at Westminster and for a bigger Assembly in Cardiff Bay,
The society describes Nick Bourne and Christine Humphreys as "the latest additions to the already cramped red benches". Its director says they will both bring their knowledge of devolution to the Lords but "this isn't about individuals, it's about the system".
Welsh Secretary David Jones has sent his congratulations to the former Welsh Tory leader in the Assembly, Nick Bourne, who's been made a peer.
The appointment of two new Welsh members of the House of Lords - Nick Bourne and Christine Humphreys- has been welcomed by their party leaders in the Assembly.
There had been speculation that a new Plaid Cymru peer would be named -rumoured to be the party's economic adviser Eurfyl ap Gwilym. That could still happen as it's understood that 10 Downing Street's list of working peers was considered too long to release in full in a single announcement.
Working peers are expected to regularly attend the House of Lords to take part in debates and votes. However, they are appointed for life on exactly the same basis as people awarded peerages as an honour.
The former leader of the Welsh Conservatives, Nick Bourne, has been made a member of the House of Lords in a list of working peers named by 10 Downing Street. He'll be joined in the Upper Chamber by Christine Humphreys, the President of the Welsh Liberal Democrats.
Nick Bourne became an AM when the Assembly was first elected in 1999, despite having played a prominent role in the 'no' campaign during the 1997 referendum. He became leader of the Welsh Tory AMs the following year and was instrumental in ending the party's opposition to devolution.
He campaigned on the victorious 'yes' side in the 2011 referendum but lost his seat two months later, when a Conservative constituency gain cost him his regional list seat in the Assembly.
Christine Humphreys was also an member of the first Assembly but stood down after just two years.
