Labour responds to news of a government investigation into the Greensill scandal

Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, responding to news of a government investigation into the Greensill scandal, said:

“This has all the hallmarks of another cover-up by the Conservatives.

“Just as with the inquiry into Priti Patel’s alleged bullying, this is another Conservative Government attempt to push bad behaviour into the long grass and hope the British public forgets. The Conservatives can’t be trusted to yet again mark their own homework.

“We need answers on Greensill now – that means key players in this cronyism scandal like David Cameron, Rishi Sunak and Matt Hancock appearing openly in front of Parliament as soon as possible to answer questions.”
