PM criticizes Entwistle payoff

The BBC Trust came under pressure from the Government today as the Culture Secretary described George Entwistle's £450,000 payoff as "tough to justify".Maria Miller questioned the size of the severance payment given the circumstances of Mr Entwistle's resignation as director- general of the BBC over the botched Newsnight investigation."This is a large amount of money, and tough to justify considering the circumstances of Mr Entwistle's departure and his contractual arrangements," she said.
