By Rowena Mason and Martin Evans BARONESS WARSI is facing calls for a police investigation into her parliamentary expenses after she claimed up to £2,000 for staying rent-free in the home of a Tory party donor.
The revelation came after the Conservative Party cochairman had to admit that she also failed to declare a source of income for more than a year. She confessed at the weekend that she did not tell House of Lords authorities that she was receiving income from a London property she had bought and rented out. She said it was an “oversight”.
It has also emerged that she claimed up to £165.50 a night while staying at a London house belonging to Dr Wafik Moustafa.
On Sunday she said she was entitled to the expenses because she had paid a
“financial contribution” to her political aide, Naweed Khan, when both were non-paying guests at the house.
But Dr Moustafa insisted that he received no money and said he was “disgusted” that she had claimed taxpayers’ money when he had simply been “helping out” the two party members by offering his free hospitality.
MPs compared the disclosures with the case of Lord Hanningfield, the Conservative peer who was jailed last year for claiming overnight expenses to stay in London when he was not in the capital.

THE actress Emilia Fox had to help out actor Dominic West as the pair (above) presented the award for best drama series at Sunday’s Baftas. The Wire actor realised he had forgotten his glasses and Fox was forced to take over autocue duties to complete the announcement.
West himself later won the award for best actor for his portrayal of the serial killer Fred West in Appropriate Adult – one of three top honours claimed by the drama in an awards evening dominated by ITV.
As well as West’s award, the stark depiction of the serial murder investigation claimed honours for best supporting actress for Monica Dolan as Rose West, and for leading actress, for Emily Watson in the role of Janet
Leach, who was assigned as an “appropriate adult” to accompany West during his police interviews.
Dominic West, who found fame in US crime drama The Wire, said he was reluctant initially to take on the role and he suffered nightmares during filming.
In his speech, he thanked his family “who brought me back into the light”.
The Bafta ceremony at London’s Royal Festival Hall favoured serious television, with Channel 4’s This Is England ’88 named the best mini series.
The best single documentary award went to Terry Pratchett: Choosing To Die, in which the author with early-onset Alzheimer’s filmed an assisted suicide at the Dignitas clinic in
Switzerland. In one of the lighter categories, Jennifer Saunders won the best female performance in a comedy programme for Absolutely Fabulous. She last won a Bafta in 1993 and said: “Thank you for still finding it funny.”
