BTW, does Parliament have a jail to which they could send a dismissed PM who has been found in contempt?

They can lock someone in the clocktower, though the last time that happened was 1880. The last time they fined anyone was 1666.

More modern parliaments have put these powers on a statutory basis, both to define them and to prevent challenges.
