The Public Accounts Committee has called for the Charity Commission to speed up its investigation into a London head teacher.
The commission is examining claims Sir Greg Martin of Durand Academy in Stockwell broke the law, by being paid almost four hundred thousand pounds as the director of a leisure firm, which operates on his school's premises.
The Commission has had a case open on the affair since October but is still to determine whether to launch a formal investigation, which would trigger powers to freeze assets, dig more deeply and potentially intervene directly.
Sir Martin told the committee the scheme was a 'fantastically good thing' because local children benefited from the facilities.
