AstraZeneca chairman Chris Brinsmead was also due face the MPs during the same session on Thursday.

In a separate session, the MPs were due to quiz Greenpeace director John Sauven, Amnesty International UK campaigns director Tim Hancock and New Economics Foundation policy director Andrew Simms.

Next Thursday, the committee will hear from a trio of junior ministers: Cabinet Office minister Tom Watson, transport minister Tom Harris and communities minister Iain Wright.
