David Cameron London, Apr. 25 (ANI): British Prime Minister David Cameron wants Muslim clerics to sit beside bishops in the House of Lords.

Proposals for a spiritual shake-up of the chamber have come from the Conservative Christian Fellowship who say Britain would benefit from a “multi-faith” set-up on the benches, the Daily Express reports.

Cameron is said to have thrown his weight behind the plan, which also involves slashing the number of peers from 792 to 500.

“There are already Catholic, Muslim and Jewish peers in the Lords. This is just an extension of that,” a Tory peer was quoted, as saying.

The Lords was last reformed in 1999. (ANI)
