Do Bishops have a place in a reformed House of Lords?

Recorded on the 29th June 2011, the All Party Humanist Group held a debate in Parliament at one of their meetings over whether Church of England Bishops should retain their automatic places in the House of Lords following the proposed reforms.

The debate was chaired by Lord Warner, and arguing for the bishops was Christina Rees (a member of the General Synod, though attending in a personal capacity) and Paul Bickley (from the thinktank Theos). Arguing against the bishops was Shadow Constitutional Reform Minister Chris Bryant and BHA Chief Exec Andrew Copson.
