Pressure piled on BBC to open up accounts

The BBC is facing renewed calls to open its accounts to full scrutiny by the National Audit Office following a scare over its financial controls.

Labour MP Christopher Bryant said it was time that limitations to NAO access be scrapped.

Last week, it emerged that Ernst & Young should be conducting an independent review of controls after corporation chairman Michael Grade said he had heard ‘general and specific criticisms’.

Bryant applauded the move, describing Grade as a ‘robust defender’ of the public interest, but added: ‘Public money should be publicly accountable.’
