ABSTRACT
The issue described in the article relates to the most important british constitutional convention regulating the functioning of the House of Lords. The following parts of the article include considerations that are devoted to: 1) explaining the genesis and the theoretical assumptions, 2) the content, and 3) in the present and in the past appearing doubts as to the application in practice and the validity as well of the convention. The author’s aim is to show the way that the convention has been developing the constitutional position of the House of Lords. On the other hand he tries to rebut an opinion formulated sometimes in the UK, suggesting that the convention has lost its validity.
