Parliament turns to PricewaterhouseCoopers for advice on new Lords appointments commission

PricewaterhouseCoopers has won a contract to help appoint members to the new influential House of Lords Appointments Commission.

PwC will act as recruitment consultants and will be tasked with sifting through applications to find the chairman and three independent members of the commission.

The commission is a non-departmental public body charged with running a nominations system for cross-bench peers. The Prime Minister will have no right to reject a nomination made by the commission.

Margaret Jay, leader of the House of Lords, said: ‘It is important that the process of selecting candidates to sit on the Appointments Commission is transparent and open. These posts are not reserved for a chosen few but are open to the best, most suitably qualified candidates.’

The Prime Minister currently nominates cross-benchers, a function that will switch to the commission in the late spring.
