The former UK Prime Minister claimed that his involvement in the lobbying of ministers on behalf of Greensill Capital was in the interest of the British economy, not in the sole interest of his own stake in the company. He lobbied several ministers and civil servants to secure Greensill’s access to the government’s Covid-19 debt schemes.
