It has emerged that the BBC has written to four former staff, whose pay-offs were investigated by the National Audit Office, to tell them they could be named to the committee.
In written evidence to MPs, head of corporate affairs Andrew Scadding, said the four had "resigned at the time of well publicised operational incidents at the BBC".
They are believed to include former BBC1 boss Peter Fincham who reportedly got a £500,000 pay-off when when he left the corporation in the wake of a scandal sparked by misleading footage of the Queen.
The BBC's head of HR, Lucy Adams, has admitted making a mistake in her evidence to a committee of MPs investigating excessive payoffs.
A spat has broken out between ex-BBC chief Mark Thompson and the Trust over large payoffs to departing staff.
