Fifteen minutes into the meeting, Rupert Murdoch ordered a complete review of all BSkyB’s remuneration policies, including the pay package of James Murdoch.
Both Legal & General and the National Association of Pension Funds have voted against the remuneration report, over the company’s unwillingness to disclose information about possible non-contractual termination payments to former chief executive Tony Ball.
Morley Fund Managers, which owns a 1.3% stake in BSkyB, is calling for Deloitte to be dumped as auditors over conflicts of interest concerns.
The future of Lord St John of Fawsley, the director who led the selection process that appointed Murdoch, is still uncertain.
