LONDON (Reuters) – Lloyds Banking Group Chief Executive Antonio Horta-Osorio has been asked to explain in parliament the pension contributions paid to the lender’s executives.

Earlier this month senior lawmakers accused executives at Britain’s biggest domestic lender of “boundless greed” for failing to give up generous pension perks that eclipse those offered to its broader workforce.

Parliament’s work and pensions committee said on Thursday the hearing would take place before the summer recess.

“More details, including other organisations that may be invited to give evidence the same day, will be released in due course,” the committee said in a statement.
