In principle you can't. However, try the following. Turn off cellular data on the iPad, Remove the SIM from the iPad (if you have any). Remove the SIM from the iPhone. Insert the iPhone SIM in the iPad.

On the iPad go to Settings > Cellular Data > APN Settings and put:

APN: wap.cingular
Username: WAP[at]CINGULARGPRS.COM
Password: CINGULAR1

Turn on cellular data on the iPad.

Does this work in the UK and if you have an unlimited data plan is it unlimited data for the ipad ?

What if you have AT&T devices. Would this still work?
