**allegedly**. (Otherwise you are making a criminal accusation
according to the British libel laws...)

Scotland Yard are investigating claims that laws made in 1925 banning the
sale of honours have been broken by political parties giving peerages
in return for donations and loans. All concern in the inquiry deny
wrongdoing. Nobody has been charged. Lord Sainsbury is one of a number
of MPs who have been interviewed by police.
