The Welsh Secretary has been branded ‘lazy’ and ‘shameful’ after he used a chauffeur-driven Jaguar to travel 100 metres from his office to Downing Street and then back again.
David Jones was seen taking the short trip to yesterday’s Cabinet Meeting in his ministerial car even though it would have taken just a few minutes to walk
His chauffeur stayed outside Number 10 for 90 minutes and then drove him back to his office.

The Wales Office is one of the closest departments to Downing Street. The short trip is around 100 metres and is a couple of minutes on foot.
But a witness said that Mr Jones has been regularly taking the short journey in his chauffeur-driven car.
The silver Jaguar XJ used by Mr Jones, which is the same model as that used by the Prime Minister, was seen waiting for him outside his office this morning.
