Green MP Caroline Lucas calls for MP job sharing

Green Party leader Caroline Lucas has floated the idea of MPs sharing jobs when elected.

Ms Lucas, who became the first Green MP in May, was speaking at the party's annual conference.

Pairs of parliamentary candidates should be allowed to stand in elections and share the job afterwards, she told activists in Birmingham, describing this as an "idea whose time will come".
