The move comes amid anger at WFH culture in Whitehall.

Cabinet Secretary Jacob Rees-Mogg made the request after being asked to extend the lease on the Serious Fraud Office’s headquarters near Trafalgar Square.

A source said: “It appears that its predecessor had refused to renew it.

“It’s ridiculous that taxpayers are paying for prime real estate when so many employees are working from home.”

The SFO has 500 staff and the office above the Canadian High Commission is said to cost £250,000 a year.

One worker said: “It may be the only place you can look out the window and watch Nelson.”

Mr Rees-Mogg is said to have been stunned to see so many empty desks during one visit.

He extended the lease by three months but urged officials to come up with a relocation plan.
