Former home secretary Leon Brittan has been questioned by police in connection with an historical allegation of rape, The Independent on Sunday reported.
The 74-year-old Conservative peer was questioned under police caution last month but was not arrested, the paper said.
A woman has alleged that rape took place in London in 1967 when she was 19, police confirmed.
Lord Brittan is understood to have strongly denied the allegation.
