Former business minister Anna Soubry branded Sir Philip Green as "revoltingly greedy" over the BHS crisis.

Speaking to presenter Tom Bradby on ITV's The Agenda following Sir Philip's exclusive interview with ITV News, she said he is the "embodiment of what is so wrong with the worst bits of British business."

I don’t mind people making money, I don’t have a problem with people making money, but I do have a problem with people being greedy, and I think it’s as simple as that. I just think he’s really rather revoltingly greedy.

– Anna Soubry
