NRI entrepreneur Karan Bilimoria, the founder and chief executive of Cobra Beer, is set to be appointed to Britain’s unelected Upper House of Parliament, the House of Lords.

Hyderabad-born Bilimoria’s name along with that of Prof Kamlesh Patel, an academic and government advisor with expertise in mental health, drugs and ethnicity, has been recommended by the House of Lords Appointments Commission to be made peers, it was officially stated here yesterday.

The seven-member list will go to Prime Minister Tony Blair, who has promised to accept the Commission’s recommendations and pass them to the Queen.

The new peers among others will also include Dame Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, former head of the Family Court system and Sir Geoffrey Dear, former chief inspector of constabulary.
