Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson 'lands taxpayers with a £300million bill' because he objects to his VIP parking space at Parliament being used for building work on the £5billion restoration - but is he really trying to protect a nuclear bunker?

Gavin Williamson is at the centre of a Commons row over claims he has hit taxpayers with a £300 million bill to protect his VIP parking spot.

The Defence Secretary has told MPs and peers overseeing the £5 billion restoration of Parliament that he objects to plans to turn the Ministry of Defence car park – where his chauffeur-driven limousine is parked – into a building site.

One peer accused Mr Williamson of being ‘pampered’, saying: ‘It will cause delays and inconvenience which the consultants say will add £300 million to the cost.’
