For the first time for many years, the House of Lords has been debating the coalition government's plans to cut the number of MPs from 650 600 and for a referendum on the way we elect them, planned for early May.
They began just before four o'clock yesterday afternoon and by midnight only two amendments had been debated.
The BBC's James Landale has the latest on the marathon debate.
