Separation of Church and State?

The Telegraph reports in its edition of 31 May 1998 that Church of England bishops are organizing opposition to UK Government plans to reduce the number of seats reserved for them in the UK's House of Lords.

Bishops meeting this week are expected to support proposals by the Archbishop of Canterbury that oppose plans to reform the House of Lords. The Archbishop, Dr. George Carey, indicated that he will oppose reduction in the 26 seats reserved for Anglican bishops, and will otherwise resist any attempt to reduce the governmental power of the established Church.
