Clarke spends £212,991 on ministerial car

Ken Clarke is courting yet more controversy,after it emerged that his Justice Department spent £212,991 on ministerial cars in the past year .

And while the Business Department spent more, it's rumoured that most of the figure quoted was spent on taking Clarke from A to B, as the Justice Secretary eschews public transport at any cost.

This is despite the PM David Cameron's publically aired views on cutting the annual amount spent on official cars, which currently stands at around £11m.

The Daily Mail reports that Clarke has 'an allocated car which other members of the ministerial team make use of where possible.'

Though we're yet to see an MP on public transport, they are apparently encourage to use it whenever humanly possible.
