The officer leading a police investigation into the alleged “cash-for-peerages” affair briefed a senior MP on the progress of inquiries.
The meeting came amid reports suggesting that police may be preparing to question Government ministers about claims that honours were offered in return for financial support for the Labour Party.
Channel 4 News quoted an unnamed source within the inquiry as saying that the police have gathered all the documentary evidence they require and now need to talk to ministers in order to conclude the investigation.
Neither Scotland Yard nor Downing Street would confirm the report, though a Number 10 spokesman indicated that police have not spoken to Prime Minister Tony Blair.
