MPs say Entwistle pay-off 'cavalier' use of money
The pay-off made to former BBC director general George Entwistle - who quit in the wake of the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal - has been criticised by MPs.
The £450,000 paid to Mr Entwistle after just 54 days in the job was a "cavalier" use of public money, the Commons Public Accounts Committee said.
The head of the BBC Trust, Lord Patten, has accused the Public Accounts Committee of "shabby treatment".
