    At a guess it was the last lord/baroness who was in the Cabinet. But I don't know who that was.

    Well Baroness Warsi is in the cabinet now, is she not?

    But no, it was not this century

    The point being, it is/was considered bad form to mix with the other house

    Not in the commons. Peers and MPs are not considered equals you see

    OK, big clue:

    This person was invited into the Commons for MPs to give their thanks to them following a service to the country.

    Bingo, LB.

    In 1814, he was allowed in so that MPs could express their thanks to him for his service in the Napoleonic wars. Perhaps that was too big a clue.
