Cable outlines executive pay plans

Business Secretary Vince Cable has announced plans to force companies to have binding votes on executive pay every three years.

Companies will then have to stick to their pay plans for the next three years or have another shareholder vote.

Mr Cable told the House of Commons there was "compelling evidence of disconnect between pay and performance in large UK companies".
