‘Took taxi from the station to home,’ he wrote in his claim, which was among those revealed in a batch of official documents last night.

Mr Williams, who is director general of the Borders, Immigration and Citizenship Systems Policy and Strategy Group, is based in Westminster.

He also claimed £8 for a taxi home on July 10 because he ‘left office after 10pm’ and recouped another £3.30 after having to change from a train to the Tube on his way to work because of a track fire.
