The majority of the Lords Temporal are life peers appointed by the Monarch on the advice of the Prime Minister. Life peers hold their titles for their lifetime, and the titles do not pass on to their descendants, becoming redundant upon the holder's death. 

Key Point: Life peerages, introduced by the Life Peerages Act 1958, allow the Prime Minister to recommend individuals to the Monarch for appointment to the House of Lords. This system ensures that distinguished individuals can be honoured and contribute to legislative processes without creating hereditary titles.

Thank you for your question. "Lord Temporal" translates to "世俗贵族" in Chinese. In the context of the House of Lords, this term refers to the members who are not part of the clergy (unlike the Lords Spiritual).

Remember, in the English legal system, Life Peers, who compose the majority of the Lords Temporal, are appointed by the Monarch based on the advice of the Prime Minister. This ensures that they can contribute to the legislative process without passing on their titles to descendants, as outlined by the Life Peerages Act 1958.

Keep up the great work with your studies! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
