'No charges' in cash for honours.

THERE was widespread speculation last night that the long-running cash-forhonours inquiry will end today without charges being brought.

Simultaneous reports on Sky News and BBC1's 10 O'Clock News quoted unnamed sources as saying that the Crown Prosecution Service would announce in the morning that no-one will be charged with any offences in connection with the allegations.

But a spokeswoman for the CPS, which is responsible for deciding on charges, refused to comment on the report, saying only: "The decisionmaking process is ongoing.

"We have no guidance on timing and if the media want to call us tomorrow, that is entirely up to them."

Neither Scotland Yard nor 10 Downing Street would make any comment.
