Tory peer facing possible police investigation over housing claims

Lord Taylor of Warwick Tomorrow's Sunday Times carries the following story about Lord Taylor of Warwick:

"A Tory peer has been caught using someone else’s home address to claim tens of thousands of pounds in expenses. Lord Taylor of Warwick, a 57-year-old former barrister, told the House of Lords that his main home was a terrace house in Oxford which he neither owned nor lived in.

"The property’s owner, Tristram Wyatt, a university academic, said he was unaware that his address had been used as the peer’s main home. Wyatt’s companion is the peer’s step-nephew, Robert Taylor, who admitted to The Sunday Times that his uncle has never lived at the house. “He doesn’t live here, he hasn’t lived here,” he said."
