Response to PACAC’s Propriety of governance in light of Greensill Inquiry

The relationship between Greensill Capital and the Government has called the propriety of governance into question.

This case has received significant attention in part because it involves lobbying by a former Prime Minister.

They reflect systemic problems that need addressing urgently to protect the public purse and the UK’s reputation for good governance.
