Ministerial expenses

More and more ministers face embarrassment as details of their credit card spending over the past six years are revealed.

Among those in hot water are former Labour Minister Shane Jones, who has already paid back about $5000 of wrongful spending, and his colleague Chris Carter.

Thousands of documents which took officials four months to gather show what ministers used their credit cards for during the six years Labour was in office and the current Government's term up until February.

They have been released under the Official Information Act.
