image for Cameron Told House Of Lords Is Full

A cross party group of peers has told Prime Minister David Cameron that he can't create any more peers as the House of Lords is already full.

The Coalition leader has created a record breaking number of peers in less than a year and the chamber is literally bursting at the seams.

The all party group warn that the members are having to compete for seats and office space and a system of "hot desking" may have to be introduced if the Prime Minister presses ahead with plans to create another 20 peers by June 1st.

Former Speaker Baroness Boothroyd in particular has advised Cameron that unless the number of peers is kept to a more manageable amount "he will have to physically remove some of the old biddies who have been sleeping in their seats continuously since 1995".

A spokesman for the PM confirmed that the situation is "currently under review".
