The petition is referred to the Lord Chancellor who reports to the House on whether the peer has proved his or her claim to the title and established his or her right to be included in the Register. If the Lord Chancellor is satisfied that the peer has established his or her right, then the peer is added to the Register; but if the Lord Chancellor is not satisfied, then the matter is referred to the Committee for Privileges and Conduct which considers the matter and reports to the House.</p> more like this
