GREEN Party MP Caroline Lucas is being probed for giving “cash for access” tours of Parliament.
The politician allegedly charged a punter £150 quid to show them around the Palace of Westminster.
Ms Lucas, the MP for Brighton Pavilion, plugged the 30-minute ‘personal guided tours’ on a crowdfunding website used to raise cash for her party.
MPs have to stick to a strict code of conduct which stops them from auctioning off political access to the highest bidder.
The Standards Commissioner has launched a formal investigation into Ms Lucas, the BBC reported.
But the MP hit back, insisting she believes she did nothing wrong.
Ms Lucas said: “I’m aware that a case against me has been brought to the Commissioner, and an investigation is currently under way.
“I do not believe I have done anything wrong.
“I have been advised that the Commissioner’s investigations are confidential so it would not be appropriate for me to say anything more at this time.”
