Tories in new ‘police search’ storm

A Tory MP last night claimed police officers entered his Commons office without a search warrant and demanded constituency correspondence.

Daniel Kawczynski said he found it “disgraceful” that police had entered his office after the controversy over the arrest of shadow immigration minister Damian Green.

But the Metropolitan Police said they had

attended Mr Kawczynski’s office “by appointment” and had not tried to carry out a search.

A piece of correspondence sent to Mr Kawczynski was taken away as part of an investigation into letters containing “non-noxious white powder” which had been received in the Commons, a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

Mr Kawczynski informed the Commons of the latest incident in a point of order.
