Clammer grows as David Cameron faces questions from lawmakers as Labor proposes a new Commons investigation
As the Labor Party has launched a bid to force an investigation into the Commons, there is increasing demand for David Cameron to face legislators’ scrutiny of lobbying the government. Sir Keir Starmer’s party will use Wednesday’s Opposition Day debate to call for a binding vote on a motion to set up a “complete and transparent” parliamentary investigation into the Greensill controversy. The Labor Party is proposing to establish a new cross-party special committee to carry out the investigation. This committee has the authority to call witnesses to submit evidence and face questions.

Parliamentarians are discussing alternative options for a parliamentary investigation into a line of lobbying involving Mr Cameron and the collapsed lender Green Sill. Kris Bryant, chairman of both the Standards and Privileges Committees, is seeking a joint investigation sponsored by a group of relevant special committees.
