BBC will not hold separate inquiry on Hall
Monday 06 May 2013
There will not be a separate inquiry into how the disgraced broadcaster Stuart Hall was able to abuse his victims while working at the BBC, the chairman of the Corporation's trust has said. Lord Patten said instead a review into the Jimmy Savile scandal by Dame Janet Smith would also investigate how Hall – who has admitted indecently assaulting 13 girls during the 1960s, 70s and 80s – gained access to his victims.
Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show yesterday, the chairman of the BBC Trust said the corporation was also likely to face compensation claims. He said: "To set up a new inquiry, when there is already one which is extremely well-resourced operating, would probably delay arriving at the truth. If we need to do more, we will."
