CPS receives parliamentary expenses files


The Crown Prosecution Service can confirm that it has today (23 November 2009) received four separate files of evidence in relation to parliamentary expenses. Any decisions on whether or not there should be any charges in relation to these files will be made as quickly as is reasonably practical. Since a number of other cases in relation to parliamentary expenses are still under investigation, it would be inappropriate to comment any further at this stage.
