Rachel Reeves responds to news that the Government’s former Head of Procurement was an adviser for Greensill Capital while a civil servant

Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, responding to news that the Government’s former Head of Procurement was an adviser for Greensill Capital while a civil servant, said: 

“This is an extraordinary and shocking revelation.

“The Conservatives have weakened the rules so much they may as well rip them up and start again.

“They must be kidding themselves if they think the current checks and measures they’ve got in place are working.

“They need to strengthen rules now and get everything about the Greensill scandal out in the open with a proper Parliamentary inquiry.”
