Lord of Parliament in United Kingdom

Lord of Parliament Meaning, as used in the UK Parliament

A Lord of Parliament is a member of the lowest rank of Scottish peerage. From 1707 to 1963 they were represented in the House of Lords by representative Peers. From 1963 to 1999 they were all entitled to sit in the Lords. The House of Lords Act 1999 removed the entitlement of hereditary Peers, including Lords of Parliament, to automatically sit in the House of Lords.
