The UK government is expected to launch a review into Greensill Capital, the collapsed financial firm for which former British prime minister David Cameron lobbied ministers.
Mr Cameron has accepted he should have communicated with the government “through only the most formal of channels” rather than text messages to finance minister Rishi Sunak as he acknowledged mis-steps over the controversy.
Breaking his weeks of silence, the former Conservative prime minister said in a statement to the PA news agency that having “reflected on this at length” he accepts there are “important lessons to be learnt”.
UK government sources confirmed a review will be launched into Greensill, although details of the investigation have not yet been released.
Greensill collapsed into administration in March.
