Dear Home Office,

It was reported in 2003 that two Labour MPs, said to be ex Cabinet Ministers, are on the Operation Ore list of suspects.The then Prime Minister answered a question in the House of Commons in 2003 about whether he was aware of anyone on the Operation Ore list.His response was that he would not comment on an ongoing police enquiry.Is this enquiry still current and are two former Labour Ministers on the list of suspects and have they been investigated by the Metropolitan Police? Yours Sincerely, Wallace Morton

Those Labour MPs are obviously on the Operation Ore list but I suspect the Met wouldn't go there when Labour were in government.
