Tory MP Calls For Thompson Answers

As this afternoon’s tape piles the pressure on Mark Thompson, Tory MP Rob Wilson tells Guido:

“Mark Thompson’s story has changed on several occasions since he first wrote to me saying he knew nothing about the Jimmy Savile allegations. The Pollard Review accepted his account. This recording and the Helen Boaden solicitor’s letter to the BBC cast a dark cloud over Thompson’s version of events. Pollard and the BBC must now reveal all the evidence as I have requested in my recent letters to them. Both the integrity of the enquiry and the BBC is at stake as is the reputation of Mark Thompson.”

This one will run…
