Thatcher questioned in US investigation

Guardian Unlimited Politics | Special Reports | Thatcher questioned in US investigation: "Baroness Thatcher has been questioned as part of a US corruption investigation into one of the Republican party's most senior congressmen, it emerged today.

She was contacted by the Metropolitan police at the request of US authorities investigating congressman Tom DeLay, who she met while he was on a trip to London in May 2000.

There is no suggestion Lady Thatcher has been accused of any wrongdoing.

The former prime minister's spokesman said she had not been paid for meeting Mr DeLay, and added that it was normal for her to have courtesy calls with visiting members of the US Congress."
