Business Secretary Vince Cable has said former Barclays boss Bob Diamond's £1.5m to £2m pay-off is a "vast sum of money."
He said: "A vast sum of money by most peoples standards given he's already taken a lot of money out of the company."
Bob Diamond tonight angrily rejected suggestions that he misled MPs over regulators' concerns about activities at Barclays.
The Bank of England's Paul Tucker told MPs he refuted claims that he attempted to influence Barclays into manipulating the Libor rate.
MPs will be hoping the Deputy Governor of the Bank of England will shed some light on unanswered questions about rate-fixing at Barclays.
