Miller: 'Serious questions around BBC management'

I am pleased that the BBC Trust have acted quickly to publish Nick Pollard's review.

The report raises serious questions around editorial and management issues at the BBC and I look to the Trust to help tackle these.

I also remind the Trust how vital it is to publish all relevant evidence, as soon as possible, in order to re-build public trust and confidence in the BBC.

It remains critical that we do not lose sight of the most important issue in this - the many victims of sexual abuse by Savile.

I urge the BBC to now focus on the review into those abuses, and ensure it is swift and transparent.

I will remain in close touch with the Trust as they oversee this work.
