Michael Martin, the speaker of the House of Commons, is to be officially investigated by the Parliamentary sleaze watchdog after admitting he used public money to fund taxis for his wife's shopping trips.
The Speaker's wife, Mary Martin, spent more than £4,000 on taxis for grocery shopping which has led to allegations that Parliamentary expenses have been abused.
