Just watched Michael Martin's statement to the Commons on the Damian Green saga ...

... if what he says is true, and if I've interpreted it correctly, the Metropolitan Police raided an MP's office without a search warrant and failed to tell the responsible officer (the Serjeant at Arms) - as they have a requirement to do so - that she was not obliged to allow access or that she could insist on seeing a warrant (which, of course, they didn't have!).

My personal conclusion - totally shocking Police conduct, and equally shocking knowledge of procedures by the responsible House of Commons officers.
