Police send cash-for-honours file to prosecutors

Detectives investigating the cash-forhonours affair handed over their main file to prosecutors yesterday, bringing the prospect of criminal charges against senior government figures a step closer.

The Metropolitan police said that the 216-page dossier was passed to the Crown Prosecution Service, together with supporting material, yesterday afternoon.

“It is now a matter for the CPS to consider the evidence [and] advise us on whether any further inquiries are necessary and whether any charges should be brought,” said a spokesman.
