Sir: Why not combine the virtues of the first-past-the-post system with a truly universal PR? ("Politics in proportion kills passion", 8 December.)

Rather than spend the next ten years looking at alternatives to the present system and at the same time looking to change the composition of the House of Lords, why not keep the present form of voting to elect the House of Commons, then take the countrywide vote in that election as a basis for the composition of the second chamber? So neat, So cost-effective.
