This week the Public Accounts Committee questioned the most senior Treasury officials about their contact with David Cameron and Lex Greensill. This is just the beginning of our work on lobbying and the Greensill scandal - we’ll be working closely with our sister select committees to pursue this issue. See here to watch a recording of the session.
The Public Accounts Committee also held important sessions on the future of adult social care and public sector pensions – see my round-up for more details.
And in Hackney, our businesses are opening up again after lockdown. If you are still working and have some money to spare, do consider spending it locally and supporting our local businesses. Please remember that whilst some of us may have been vaccinated, many are still waiting and the virus is still a threat. Do continue washing your hands, wearing your face covering, and keeping your distance. See here for the latest guidance on the COVID restrictions and see here for the latest COVID-19 data in Hackney.
