"The church makes a major contribution to public debate on criminal justice and the Bishop to Prisons speaks on criminal justice issues in the House of Lords." - from the Lambeth Palace announcement.
Err - except that the present Bishop of Rochester isn't (yet) a member of the House of Lords!
Perhaps he could combine this job with that of becoming the 'ombudsman' to the disaffected on the issue of Women's Ministry in the C. of E.
Indeed he is not! But the turnover rate at present is such that he will be pretty soon. I (for I am he) much look forward to contributing in this role.
