Fund manager Nicola Horlick said the pay of some of the top people in the world of business could be justified, despite criticism in a High Pay Commission report.

She said the widening gap between salary levels was a major concern although she had no problem with people being well paid if they delivered.

Ms Horlick then discussed her film with Andrew Neil, Michael Portillo and Alan Johnson
