Ex-PM David Cameron 'gave scandal-hit banker access to 11 Government departments'

DAVID Cameron gave a scandal-hit banker privileged access to 11 government departments, it emerged last night.

The former PM provided Lex Greensill with a security pass to help him develop a financial product across Whitehall.

Mr Cameron approved a multibillion-pound loan scheme in 2012 for NHS-linked pharmacies, leaked documents reveal.

It came after he was given a report which rejected the idea — but with criticisms removed, The Sunday Times claimed last night.

Australian Greensill was also able to pitch plans to upgrade motorways including the M62, M4 and M5.

And he held meetings with defence officials on funding for Typhoon fighter jets.

Mr Cameron became an employee of Greensill after he left No10 in 2016.

But the firm, once valued at £5billion, went into liquidation this month.

The Government said: “Lex Greensill acted as a supply chain finance adviser and as a crown representative.”
