In his letter to the City of London Police, Karl Turner wrote:
Labour has called for a criminal inquiry into the expenses of Conservative Party co-chairman Baroness Warsi as the Prime Minister acknowledged she had questions to answer.
The MP Karl Turner has written to the City of London Police to request they examine whether she claimed for accommodation while staying at a friend's house rent free.
Baroness Warsi has already asked Lords Commissioner for Standards Paul Kernaghan to investigate.
The move came amid a slew of fresh newspaper allegations against the under-fire politician, including an alleged failure to declare business interests and questions over foreign visits.
Lady Warsi issued a fresh denial of wrongdoing, insisting that she had acted within the rules at all times
In a statement, Baroness Warsi said: "My shareholdings and, before becoming a minister, directorships have at all material times been disclosed as required on the Register of Lords' Interests and to the Cabinet Office and on the register of ministerial interests."
Conservative co-chairman Baroness Warsi has denied failing to register business interests as she faced fresh allegations of breaching House of Lords rules.
The peer, whose expenses claims are being examined by a watchdog, insisted she had stuck by the rules for declaring shareholdings.
She was responding to a Sunday Telegraph report that she failed to declare a controlling stake in a spice manufacturing firm with the House of Lords authorities.
The newspaper said February accounts for Rupert's Recipes showed Baroness Warsi held 60% of its shares - sufficient to require a public declaration.
