Former Prime Minister David Cameron and financier Lex Greensill are due to appear before MPs next week amid a lobbying controversy.
Mr. Greensill will take questions from the Treasury Committee next Tuesday, and Mr. Cameron will follow on Thursday, as part of the Greensill Capital Lessons Investigation.
Ties between Greensill, which was founded by the financier, the government and Mr Cameron have come under scrutiny following questions about the former Tory PM’s lobbying on behalf of the company .
Mr Cameron’s activities – which included texting Chancellor Rishi Sunak – sparked a review by lawyer Nigel Boardman, ordered by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
The collapse of Greensill – which filed for insolvency in March – threatened thousands of UK jobs at Liberty Steel, which depended on it for funding.
Ahead of the Greensill sessions, committee chairman Mel Stride said: âThe committee is committed to answering the key question of whether HM Treasury has adequately responded to lobbying on behalf of Greensill Capital, including that conducted by David Cameron. â
