- John Berlow's wife, 49, is a governor of a secondary school in West London
- At school, £ 6,200 was spent on Jo Malone candles, according to the report
- £ 15,000 was also spent on Farrow & Ball paints and £ 80,300 on furniture
Spokesman John Bercow's wife allowed £ 100,000 for Jo Malone candles and luxurious Farrow & Ball colors at the school where she is governor.
Sally Bercow, 49, is a governor at her high-performing secondary school in West London.
It was controversially named by her husband, 56, during a Brexit debate in the lower house when he tried to blame cabinet minister Michael Gove for being too loud.
Gove's children attend the same school as the Bercows. Mr. Bercow tells Mr. Gove live on TV: “I tell the Chancellor of the Duchy (Mr. Gove) that he is a very good parent when he shows up at our children's school as a well-behaved guy.
"He wouldn't dare to do that in front of (Headmaster's name), nor would I."

Bercows scolding about Michael Gove
The speaker interrupted the discussion and said: "Order! Assignment! Very rude for members … order, order, order, order.
“I tell the Chancellor of the Duchy (Mr. Gove) that when he shows up as a parent at our children's school, he is a very good guy.
"He wouldn't dare to do that in front of (Headmaster's name), nor would I.
“Don't gesticulate, don't scold. Spare us the theater. Behave yourself. Be a good boy, young man. Be a good boy. & # 39;
He later added: “We know the plays that he perfected in the Oxford Union. Not interested, not interested, be calm! & # 39;
Jo Malone candles can cost up to £ 300 each, and Farrow & Ball paints cost three times the high street brand Dulux, which ranges from £ 15 to £ 30 per can.
The school that Bercow children attend and in which their mother is governor is a high-performing state school, often referred to as a “socialist eton”.
All spending decisions are overseen by the Board of Governors, which includes Ms. Bercow.
The figures were published in an annual budget report.
MailOnline asked the school for a comment. Previously, the heads of the academy claimed that the candles and the paint had a longer lifespan.
Expenditures were reviewed by the Ministry of Education last year, but no "violations" were identified.
Ms. Bercow made headlines when she entered the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2011.
