A new report published by ComRes finds that most Peers, 55%, are not satisfied with the status quo and think there should be changes to the arrangements for the Lords Spiritual in the House of Lords.
Conservative Peers are overwhelmingly of the view that changes to the status quo are unnecessary, while around half of all Labour Peers think there should not be any faith-based representation in the Upper House.  Liberal Democrat Peers are even more of this view.
