Computers inside Britain’s House of Parliament were used to make 250,000 requests to access pornography sites last year. The figures work out to 700 attempts a day.

The figures, released by the Palace of Westminster’s IT department, were revealed after a Freedom of Information request.

It also emerged that, a site where you can you rate the looks of members of parliament, was the most popular banned site at Britain’s Parliament.”

The figures are down from 800 requests a day when a similar FOI request was made two years ago. But many could be down to unwanted internet pop-ups.

The news will be unwelcome following the allegations facing the deputy speaker of the House of Lords, Lord Sewel, who appeared to be filmed snorting cocaine at a party with prostitutes.
