Scotland Yard: Warsi expense claims 'not a matter for police'

Scotland Yard has decided that there are not grounds for a police investigation into allegations that Baroness Warsi claimed for accommodation expenses while staying at a friend's house rent-free.

[We have] determined that this is not a matter for the police. As such the matter has been referred back to the House of Lords Commissioner for Standards. The matter was considered in accordance with previously adopted procedures.
