The House of Lords will continue debating the Article 50 bill on February 20 and the Ukip deputy has warned them not to delay the Brexit process.
Brexit secretary David Davis has told peers to do their “patriotic duty” and not frustrate the will of the British people.
A number of MPs have threatened the House of Lords if they frustrate proceedings it will lead to the demise and abolishment of the chamber.
The 56-year-old Ukip deputy added that the chamber must respect the EU referendum vote because of their already tainted reputation.
Peter Whittle sent a fiery warning to the House of Lords peers
Speaking on BBC 5 Live, he said: “Frankly though the Lords should be very careful really before they appear to be somehow disdaining the popular vote.
“Their general reputation stock is at a very low ebb anyway in the Lords at the moment.”
Last week MPs voted overwhelmingly to support the Article 50 bill which will give Theresa May the power to begin Brexit proceedings at the end of March.
The Brexit secretary added that he believes the bill will be passed back and forth between the two houses over amendments but remains confident in the Prime Ministers deadline to begin negotiations with the European Union.
Whittle claimed the House of Lords need to think of their reputation when they debate the bill

Their general reputation stock is at a very low ebb anyway in the Lords
He said: “I expect it to be resolved in good time before the end of March.”
Mr Whittle then turned on the voting preferences of the House of Lords before he slammed the idea of them slowing up the process.
He finished: “It has also got an inbuilt Remain majority, caught in the Lords.
“The idea that they would have any real power, any real attempt, to in some way seriously delay the process, I think would be completely unacceptable.
“I think they should think very clearly before they take that sort of path.”
