British police have appealed to Gordon Brown, finance minister of the country and the most probable successor to Tony Blair as prime minister, with the requirement to provide written testimony in the case of titles in exchange for money.

A similar request was deputy prime minister John Prescott and former health minister Alan Milburn, who led the Labour Party headquarters in 2005.

Scotland Yard are interested violated a law in 1925 banning the sale of aristocratic titles in Britain. The police have already arrested for questioning by Chief Cashier of the election campaign Labor's Lord Levy and held as witnesses several dozen politicians and businessmen.

Titles fan of British Queen Elizabeth II, but it does so on the basis of lists provided by the Government.

Earlier this year, it became known that several British millionaires who lent the Labour Party a lot of money during the election campaign in 2005, were presented at the titles and seats in the House of Lords. The police were interested in what ministers knew about what was happening, and not whether the promised titles in exchange for loans, reports the BBC.
