I wasn't on fiddle, says ex-Tory lord; COURT.

Byline: DON MACKAY

A FORMER Tory peer yesterday appeared in court to face six charges of theft by false accounting.

Lord Taylor of Warwick, 58, denied dishonestly claiming more than pounds 24,300 in overnight subsistence and mileage.

It is alleged he said his main home was outside London while he lived in the capital.

He was allowed to enter his pleas at Southwark crown court, in central London, without having to stand in the dock.

The court heard three former Labour MPs bailed after being charged with theft by false accounting are likely be tried separately from November 22. David Chaytor, Elliot Morley and Jim Devine were not in court yesterday.

Tory peer Lord Hanningfield and former Labour MP Eric Illsley, also not in court, are likely to stand trial early next year. All five deny wrongdoing.
