    Police probe another Labour MP over expenses

    It has been reported that another Labour MP is under police investigation over his parliamentary expenses.

    The Daily Telegraph said that the Metropolitan Police launched a criminal inquiry into Leyton and Wanstead MP Harry Cohen after he claimed around £70,000 for a second home while renting out his main residence.

    The unconfirmed report came on the eve of the first appearance in court of three Labour MPs and a Conservative peer charged with theft by false accounting in relation to their allowances.

    The Metropolitan Police said at the time of their charging that "a small number of cases" relating to parliamentary expenses remained under consideration.

    Scotland Yard have refused to say whether Mr Cohen was one of those under investigation or how many cases were still being looked at.

    MPs Elliot Morley of Scunthorpe, David Chaytor of Bury North and Livingston's Jim Devine will appear at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court on Thursday alongside Conservative peer Lord Hanningfield.
