Eastleigh MP and Cabinet minister Chris Huhne was interviewed by police over allegations he tried to evade punishment for speeding.
Mr Huhne and another person - thought to be his ex-wife Vicky Pryce - were questioned amid claims he asked her to accept penalty points on his behalf in March 2003.
Essex Police said: "We can confirm that two individuals have been interviewed today, Tuesday May 24 2011, at police stations in Essex and London in respect of allegations regarding a speeding offence.''
The force did not confirm whether either interview was carried out under caution, but stressed no arrests had been made yet.
A spokeswoman for Mr Huhne said: "Chris Huhne helped the Essex Police with their inquiries today and looks forward to an early resolution of this issue.''
