Anneliese Dodds responds to news that Greensill Capital’s administrator has been unable to verify invoices underpinning loans to Sanjeev Gupta

Anneliese Dodds MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to news that Greensill Capital’s administrator has been unable to verify invoices underpinning loans to Sanjeev Gupta, said:

“These reports are very serious indeed and raise further questions as to why the Government opened the door for Greensill Capital to lend through the CLBILS scheme.

“The Chancellor’s silence on this issue has been deafening – he must come forward and explain that decision, and set out what his department is doing to ensure public money lent through emergency Covid loan programmes is protected.”
