Mystery currently surrounds who paid for Boris Johnson’s Christmas holiday.
The co founder of Car Phone Warehouse had denied all allegations that he paid for the Christmas holiday for the Prime minister to the Caribbean.
It’s acknowledged that Boris Johnson and The prime minister and his girlfriend Carrie Symonds accepted a gift of accommodation for the private trip to St Vincent and the Grenadines at Christmas.
The prime minister himself lodged in the commons register of current interests that David Ross paid for the trip, Ross being the co founder of Car Phone Warehouse himself, but he refutly denies that he did.
The cost of the excursion is entered by the prime minister at a total of 15,000GBP as a gift to him.
Although a spokesman for the multimillionaire businessman told the Daily Mail in the UK his involvement had been limited to helping the prime minister find the accommodation.
A spokesman for the Co Founder of the business Car Phone Warehouse told the newspaper: “Boris Johnson did not stay in David Ross’s house.
“Boris wanted some help to find somewhere in Mustique, David called the company who run all the villas and somebody had dropped out”.
“So Boris got the use of a villa that was worth £15,000, but David Ross did not pay any monies whatsoever for this.”
