BBC news with Michael Pose. The cases of 4 parliamentarians in Britain are being referred to prosecutors in connection with the scandal over excessive expenses claims by politicians. The 4 have not been named, but the police say they included members of both the House of Commons, and the House of Lords. Rod Watson reports. The expenses scandal has now taken another turn. The police say they’ve delivered files of evidence on 4 parliamentarians to prosecutors. It will now be for the prosecution service to decide whether they will press charges.

So the prospects of an MP or a member of the House of Lords having to appear in court, it’s now a step closer.

Proposals by Microsoft to pay newsproviders to leave Google will be welcome by publishers especially if this started a trend among other search engines.
