Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has admitted that there may be a "political price to pay" if the government overrules the European Court of Human Rights over prisoner voting.
Speaking on Monday, he said: “The legal views, the legal precedents around our relationship with the European Court of Human Rights are very clear.
“The Parliament has the right to overrule the Court but the law lords who first passed that ruling were very clear that there may be a political price to pay if it chooses to overrule the court.”
