Former U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron showed a “significant lack of judgment” in repeatedly lobbying the government on behalf of the now-collapsed finance firm Greensill Capital, a parliamentary inquiry has found.

The Treasury Select Committee called for lobbying rules to be strengthened in the aftermath of the episode, during which Cameron tried to persuade his former colleagues to help the firm gain access to Covid support.
