A Labour MP says he has reported peer Lord Hanningfield to the police over allegations related to his parliamentary expenses.
John Mann said he was reporting the former Tory peer to the Metropolitan Police for investigation under the 1968 Theft Act.
"Lords can claim either by the half-day or the day," said Mr Mann. "If what has been reported is accurate, he has been doing much less than half-days but claiming for a day."
In a letter to Met Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, obtained by the Mirror, Mr Mann said it appeared that Lord Hanningfield's actions could amount to obtaining money by deception.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said the Met was not aware of Mr Mann's complaint having been received.
