Outrage as RBS boss gets a £963,000 bonus
A £963,000 bonus in shares awarded to Royal Bank of Scotland boss Stephen Hester has been strongly criticised.
Labour leader Ed Miliband said the payout represented a "disgraceful failure of leadership by the prime minister".
But the Chancellor, George Osborne, said the previous Labour government was responsible as it had forged the contract that included a bonus clause.
Liberal Democrat minister Jeremy Browne said Mr Hester should turn down the bonus.
