Britain Pfizer AstraZeneca

Pfizer CEO Ian Read arrives for a committee hearing at Portcullis House in London, Tuesday, May 13, 2014. British lawmakers are expected to pressure the chief executive of Pfizer to guarantee jobs should the American company succeed in taking over London-based AstraZeneca, when they question him on Tuesday. Ian Read faces Parliament’s Business Innovation and Skills Committee to defend his company’s $106 billion cash and stock offer. The U.S. drugmaker has sought in writing to ease worries that British jobs will be lost — but has so far failed to convince skeptical lawmakers. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham)
