Economics Correspondent

The scale of David Cameron’s lobbying efforts on behalf of the finance company Greensill were laid bare today, revealing the former prime minister sent 62 texts and 11 emails to ministers and officials including Michael Gove and the chancellor.

Lex Greensill himself was questioned by MPs for the first time since his company collapsed in March, defending suggestions that his multi-billion pound business was ever viable.
