Former British PM to ‘respond positively’ to MP’s

David Cameron says he will “respond positively” to any requests from MPs for him to give evidence about Greensill Capital.

The former British prime minister has faced criticism for lobbying on behalf of the finance firm, which recently collapsed.

It has sparked a wider row over private companies’ attempts to influence ministers and officials. The government has asked a senior lawyer to conduct a review into the issue and to report by the end of June. But yesterday the Commons Treasury committee announced plans for its own investigation, with other committees reportedly planning to do the same.
