'CENTRAL OFFICE TRAIL' CLAIMS IN WESTMINSTER CONTROVERSY

The Labour Party last night claimed there was an 'unmistakeable trail' leading to Conservative Central Office in the Westminster City Council gerrymandering allegations, the Financial Times reports (p5).

Shadow environment secretary Jack Straw has written to five ministers and former ministers to ask them to set out what they knew about the policy, the paper says.

It was confirmed yesterday that Wandsworth LBC, another Tory flagship council, was under investigation by the district auditor for aspects of its housing policy, although former leader Croydon Central MP Paul Beresford is reported to have denied any comparison with allegations made against Westminster.

Westminster members and officers were accused by the auditor of gerrymandering in a provisional report last week.
