Senate Estimates heard further revelations about Ms Bishop using her political connections to advance the interests of Greensill Capital inside the Morrison Government. Treasury Deputy Secretary, Meghan Quinn, told Senate Estimates Ms Bishop had contacted Josh Frydenberg’s office to set up a meeting for Greensill Capital so it could pitch its problematic supply chain finance product to a Treasury scheme targeting small and medium businesses. This occurred at a time when questions were being increasingly raised about the company’s financial wellbeing. Former UK Prime Minister David Cameron has been forced by the British Parliament to reveal the extent of his efforts to influence government on behalf of Greensill. Scott Morrison should launch an independent probe into how Ms Bishop has used her contacts in the most senior ranks of government to push the agenda of a billionaire and his supply chain finance company. It’s been close to impossible to get answers on who was approached by Ms Bishop on behalf of Greensill, with a range of ministers and departments refusing to respond to questions. This is a government that laughs in the face of transparency and accountability. Australians deserve to know the full story about how access was engineered for Greensill Capital by Ms Bishop and what Ms Bishop and Greensill got in return.
