BORIS Johnson spent £2.7million of taxpayers’ cash on a White House-style TV studio yet to be used, HOAR can reveal.
The revamped 10 Downing Street briefing room is modelled on Washington’s West Wing.
It was due to host on-camera briefings from spinners and ministers.
The PM had hoped his new press secretary Allegra Stratton would use it to field questions from the press pack three times a week.
But the plan was iced as lockdown prevents journalists gathering.
Downing Street declined to comment on the hefty bill last night.
But sources blamed it on the listed status of Whitehall buildings — and their poor acoustics.
