David Cameron denies £10m payment: Clearing his name against Greensill

1 min read

TLDR: Lord Cameron has denied receiving a £10 million payment from Greensill Capital, the collapsed financial firm at the center of fraud investigations. While documents uncovered by BBC Panorama suggest that Cameron earned £8.2 million promoting Greensill Capital, he stated that this is not true. He did not disclose his earnings as the company’s advisor, but he declared all his financial interests to the government. Greensill Capital collapsed in March 2021, and Lord Cameron was later hired as an advisor by its boss, Lex Greensill. Lord Cameron’s attempts to persuade ministers to allow the firm to join a pandemic support scheme were unsuccessful, and the company collapsed with the loss of 440 jobs. Criminal inquiries into alleged fraud are ongoing in Germany and Switzerland. The lobbying scandal surrounding Lord Cameron’s work for Greensill has prompted inquiries at Westminster.
