Lord Taylor of Warwick, who was jailed over his expenses, says he will return to the Lords as he has a "role to play" informing the debate on prison reform.

We could also ask why he's allowed back in. Can't see him raising it.

Didn't Lord Archer say much the same after his imprisonment for perjury?

In this report readers are informed that he told BBC News that " . . . it is difficult enough to take the House of Lords seriously without having people who have served substantial prison terms going back in and participating in their debates."
