Bridget Phillipson responds to latest revelations about David Cameron’s lobbying on behalf of Greensill

Bridget Phillipson MP, Labour’s Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, responding to The Sunday Times’ latest revelations about David Cameron’s lobbying on behalf of Greensill, said:

“Every day brings fresh revelations about the culture of cronyism at the heart of this Conservative Government. Through David Cameron, Greensill looks to have had the run of Government from Number 10 down, including access to millions of pounds of public money.

“And yet we’ve heard nothing from Rishi Sunak about the role he played in ‘pushing’ his officials to change the rules of Government schemes to suit Cameron and Greensill.

“He needs to come out of hiding and make a statement to Parliament at the earliest opportunity and answer questions on this growing scandal. And we need a full and thorough investigation into what happened.”
