The movie also ended up generating “substantial income” for the hospital, an MP revealed.

Speaking in the House of Commons yesterday, Tory MP Penny Mordaunt said: “When I was director of Kensington and Chelsea Council, I discovered that one of our local hospitals was hiring out one of its closed - but fully-equipped wards - to a film company to use as a film set.

“To add insult to injury, the movie was a pornographic one. Although I cannot claim to have seen the final picture - as I understand, these things are no longer claimable on parliamentary expenses - it was a big-budget affair and generated substantial income for the hospital.

“But apart from cheering up a few of the in-patients, it cannot be said to be contributing to the objectives of the primary care trust (PCT).”

Ms Mordaunt, who is MP for Portsmouth North, did not name the hospital during the debate on improving transparency in government accounting.

A statement issued by NHS Kensington & Chelsea said: “We can confirm this incident occurred some time prior to 2002 under a predecessor organisation’s management and prior to the formation of PCTs.”

  • Yes, it's funny. But FFS, literally, what have we sunk to? Whatever your opinion of porn (and I am an old feminist and freely admit to seeing it as unpleasant and overall misogynistic) it is to say the least inappropriate. David Cameron is now the Prime Minister - he needs to do and say something at least. Blimey - everything one wants to say is Carry On Matron: Heads must roll; what have we come to..........
