Justice scalesMr Lewis was later bailed pending further inquiries


A Conservative vice-chairman has been arrested on suspicion of rape, relating to an alleged offence more than 40 years ago.


Alan Lewis, 75, was arrested by Greater Manchester Police after a woman claimed she was attacked in the late 1960s.


Mr Lewis was appointed vice chairman for business relations by David Cameron in 2010.


A party spokesman said: "This is an ongoing police matter so we are not able to make any comments."


Mr Lewis is a successful entrepreneur who owns the Crombie clothing chain.


In 1990, he was made a CBE for his services as chairman of the Confederation of British Industry's initiative to prepare British businesses to the single market.


A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: "A 75-year-old man was arrested following a complaint received earlier this year of an historic rape that occurred in the Manchester area in the late 60s.


"The man was later bailed pending further inquiries."
