Deputy Labour Leader Harriet Harman is pleading guilty to a speeding offence in Suffolk, it has emerged.
The Leader of the House of Commons, is listed to appear before Ipswich magistrates later this month.
But the Labour party confirmed she plans to avoid the appearance through pleading guilty by post.
South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court confirmed 57-year-old Ms Harman was listed to attend a first hearing of the case next Tuesday.
A spokesman for the deputy Labour leader said: "She has pleaded guilty by post."
It is the second time the former Solicitor-General has been caught speeding, following an incident in February 2003 when she was caught doing 99mph in a 70mph zone on the M4 in Wiltshire.
Suffolk police said they could not confirm the location or date of Ms Harman's speeding offence.
