Forty-two ministers and MKs, including five Kadima MKs, on Tuesday signed a petition calling on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to solve the housing problem by also allowing more building in the West Bank, Israel Radio reported.

The petition was presented during a discussion of the Lobby for Israel group in the Knesset headed by Ze'ev Elkin of Likud and Aryeh Eldad of the National Union party.

Knesset Speaker Reueven Rivlin and MKs Daniel Herschkowitz and Michael Eitan were among those who attended the meeting.
