would u please explain to me this quote? especially the red one.

"Parliament Acts of 1911 and 1949, affected the House of Lords and removed most of its political authority. Later Acts created nonhereditary titles (life peers), which supplement the old arrangement in which most peerages were hereditary".

Thnx in advance.
