The comments made by Anneliese Dodds, the Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, on 6 April 2021.
The Treasury knew the rules that protect public money used to back bank-run lending schemes didn’t apply to Greensill.
Despite this, the Chancellor granted it the right to lend millions of pounds in government-backed Covid loans.
The public will be appalled to hear how much of their money may have been put at risk by the Conservatives’ cosy connections to Greensill Capital.
That’s why we need a full, transparent and thorough investigation into this affair.
