Lord Taylor will appear in front of Magistrates on August 13th accused of six charges of false accounting.
From yesterday's Independent;
He is alleged to have claimed over £11,000 in expenses by pretending that his home was outside London when he was actually living in the capital.Lord Taylor is now the sixth politician to face criminal charges over police investigations into MPs' and peers' expenses.
Three former Labour MPs – Elliott Morley, David Chaytor and Jim Devine – who all stood down at the recent general election, a current sitting Labour MP Eric Illsley, and a second Conservative peer, Lord Hanningfield, have also been charged.
"Having thoroughly reviewed the eighth file of evidence we have received from the Metropolitan Police in relation to parliamentary expenses, we concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to bring criminal charges against Lord Taylor," said the director of public prosecutions, Keir Starmer, yesterday.So, although five have faced charges and one is about to, two haven't as Keir Starmer states they have reviewed eight files of evidence.
