The task, which pays him £9.50 per week being an enhanced inmate, is the very best in jail.
A resource revealed: “Morley has arrived on his ft and that he has among the cushiest jobs.
“Some think it might be his method of requesting redemption within the eyes of God… or he might simply want a simple existence.
“His appointment was greeted with elevated eyebrows by a few inmates and staff who felt it had been favouritism.”
Morley’s appointment could have been requested by prison chaplain the Rev Peter Master or allotted through the governor or jail labour board.
The shamed MP was sentenced to 16 several weeks for Britain’s worst parliamentary expenses fraud.
