Lord Taylor of Warwick In December last year, the Sunday Times accused Conservative peer Lord Taylor of Warwick of claiming tens of thousands of pounds in expenses to which he should not have been entitled.

The accusations surrounded alleged claims using his late mother's address as his main home six years after her death.

Today the Crown Prosecution Service has announced that Lord Taylor Taylor has been charged with six counts of false accounting under the Theft Act , relating to claims for more than £11,000 overnight subsistence and mileage. 

The Telegraph has more details.

I now understand that he has resigned the Conservative whip in the Lords.

Since legal proceedings are now underway against him, comments are closed on this thread.
