One of Parliament’s most powerful officials quits following a clash between Westminster and MI5

Commons Serjeant at Arms Lawrence Ward walked out amid MPs’ fears there is a “spy in their midst”, it was reported.

He apparently left after three years, over what he sees as a breach of parliamentary sovereignty.

The row centres on Paul Martin, a career MI5 agent working as Parliament’s security director while regularly briefing senior spooks.​
