[ANON POST] Victorian Era Politics

Setting and Characters: Hello, this is set in 1885, England, my main character is a member of the House of Lords. I know there were not elected by the people but rather held a hereditary lifetime position. So, I was wondering if anyone could give me more informations about politics of Victorian England? Precisely: if a member of the Parliament were involved in a scandal, would he be arrested? Also, could he voluntarily 'resign'?

I've tried Wikipedia and Google terms "house of lords victorian era", "politics victorian era".
