Lady Thatcher caught up in US corruption probe

The Metropolitan Police has been asked to question the former Prime Minister, Baroness Thatcher, as part of a US corruption investigation, according to a leaked official document.
According to the Whitehall document, the US authorities lodged a request for information about a meeting she held with the US Republican Congressman Tom DeLay five years ago.

It forms part of an inquiry by the US Justice Department into allegations that congressmen received free foreign holidays in return for seeking to influence legislation.
