Cameron spoke on Tuesday ahead of an international anti-corruption summit he is hosting on Thursday.

“We had a very successful cabinet meeting this morning, talking about our anti-corruption summit,” Cameron told the queen.

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani are due to attend the summit.
