Melbourne, Sep 5 (ANI): Politicians at New South Wales Parliament House will now be able to access porn sites with prior permission and only if it's for 'research'.

Last week, when an apparently unauthorised audit of Internet use was leaked, it revealed that many MPs accessed porn sites from work.

Now, Upper House President Amanda Fazio has reviewed the policies over Internet use.

The new guidelines will allow staffers to seek an exemption to view adult sites if they need to research, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Fazio said a memo will be issued to MPs this week of the new arrangements, with the permission slip already available on the parliament intranet.

The secret audit lead to ports minister Paul McLeay loosing his job for surfing porn and gambling websites on the job.

It also revealed that computers in the office of Christian MP Fred Nile had accessed porn sites.

But the two MPs responsible for running both house of parliament also have no idea who actually conducted the "audit". (ANI)
