MPs urge Cameron to make public Greensill lobbying texts to Sunak

An influential group of MPs has ordered David Cameron to release texts he sent to the chancellor, Rishi Sunak, as part of a parliamentary inquiry into the Greensill lobbying scandal. The Conservative-dominated Treasury select committee wrote to key figures in the scandal on Monday, asking for evidence that will help piece together the true impact of Cameron’s efforts to ensure the lender had access to emergency Covid loans and NHS staff records. Cameron, whose lobbying for Greensill prompted at least seven inquiries by parliamentary committees, the government and the civil service, has been told to provide a timeline and records of his contact with the Treasury and related agencies, and release the full texts he sent to the chancellor at the start of the pandemic last year.
