Number of Lords of Appeal in Ordinary[edit]

I've put an unreferenced template in this section as (apart from being unreferenced) this seems to contradict the actual numbers of Lords. The section presently says

The number of Lords of Appeal in Ordinary was increased from time to time — to three in 1882, to four in 1891, to six in 1913, to seven in 1919, to nine in 1947, to eleven in 1968 and to twelve in 1994.

...but I've totted up the numbers and an increase to ten came in 1963 or before, the increase to twelve by 1992 and not in 1994, and between 1995 and 2004 there were normally thirteen Lords of Appeal in Ordinary - unless I've made an obvious mistake somewhere.

Er, it looks like I have! Haven't quite worked out where yet though Opera hat (talk) 01:01, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
OK, so the numbers are actually fine, except that there was an increase to ten in 1963 or before. But there still isn't a reference given for any of this so the template might as well stay until there is. Opera hat (talk) 02:04, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Voting on legislation?[edit]

Were the Lords of Appeal in Ordinary permitted to vote on legislation as the other lords did? Did there come a point when they didn't do so, as a matter of convention? --Jfruh (talk) 03:44, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Removed trivial reference[edit]

I have removed a general reference to a usenet post that was just a bunch of quotes from another linked document. I thought of puuting it under a "external links" section but it seems really to trivial even there. But mabye someone could find leads to other sources from it or something other good of it. Anyway, here it is:
