Husband watches adult films, British home secretary bills officeMarch 29th, 2009 - 8:15 pm ICT by IANS
London, March 29 (DPA) British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith was in hot water Sunday over the billing to parliament of a pay-per-view package, which included the cost of two adult entertainment programmes.
Smith apologised for the billing of 67 pounds ($96) for the TV package which was mistakenly applied to her parliamentary allowance as a part of her Internet connection expenses, the BBC reported.
Smith added that the bill would be repaid to parliament in full.
Apparently the two adult films were viewed by Smith’s husband, who is also her parliamentary assistant, while she was away from home.
BBC quoted Smith as stating that she gave her husband “a real ear-bashing” over the affair.
Smith is already under investigation for her use of government allowances.
