MPs, peers and their staff are accessing hardcore pornography websites through Parliament's internet network, a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
Staff on the House of Commons estate have been using their office computers to access a range of unusual sites, including those offering foot and fat fetish pornography.
The log of websites reveals that MPs, peers and their staff viewed Facebook more times than the Parliament website in December of last year.
The Mail on Sunday calculated that X-rated websites have been viewed more than 2,500 in a 14-month period. It found gay cruising sites had been accessed 3,500 times, while a website for extra-marital affairs was also clicked on 52,000 times in seven months.
A website catering for people with foot fetishes was clicked on 470 times.
Other popular websites last year included World of Solitaire, for playing cards, and Betfair, a gambling website.
People working on the Parliamentary estate are barred from looking at pornographic images, nudity and adult material on their computers. A spokesman for the authorities said some inappropriate websites may have been clicked on accidentally.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/9890537/MPs-and-staff-accessing-hardcore-porn-and-fetish-websites.html
