British MPs want cameras that make them look good
London: British lawmakers have backed plans for new cameras to be set up in the House of Commons that will not show their bald spots, bags under the eyes and extra weight.
Filming is currently limited to eight cameras in fixed, high positions, The Sun reported.
Prime Minister David Cameron has been accused of carefully sweeping his hair to cover a bald patch.
The Commons Administration Committee has now allowed two lower-level remote-controlled cameras to be installed behind the speaker's chair and a pair on the officials' box next to it.
TV executives from Sky, BBC and ITV had urged MPs to change the rules.
Peter Knowles, editor of BBC Parliament, told the committee in 2012 that the "angles are incredibly unflattering to the front benches".
