David Cameron will be hauled before MPs next week for a grilling over the Greensill scandal.
The former Prime Minister will appear before the Commons Treasury Select Committee on Thursday where he is due to face awkward questions over his role lobbying Chancellor Rishi Sunak and two junior Treasury ministers for cash for the embattled supply chain finance firm.
Its founder Lex Greensill will give evidence to MPs on Tuesday.
Committee chairman Mel Stride said: “The committee is determined to answer the key question as to whether HM Treasury responded appropriately to the lobbying on behalf of Greensill Capital, including that carried out by David Cameron.
“We also want to establish what lessons there are from Greensill’s collapse for the operation of the financial system.
“Following our first evidence session of the inquiry last week with experts, next week we’ll hear from two of the key figures: Lex Greensill and David Cameron.
“The Committee will want to carefully examine their actions in relation to Greensill Capital and its interactions with HM Treasury.”
