Official records reveal that over the past year, members of Parliament, peers and their staff accessed pornographic websites 300,000 times.  The information was released by Palace of Westminster IT bosses this week in response to a freedom of information request. 

When broken down the total figure represents more than 820 sites a day and covers "attempts to access websites categorized as pornography." Parliamentary staffers, however, claim that the figure also included pop-ups that don't reflect deliberate efforts to search for porn.
