Savile inquiry is rejected
CULTURE Secretary Maria Miller (pictured above) has dismissed calls for an independent inquiry into the Jimmy Savile scandal, but took a swipe at the BBC for failing to broadcast its own television investigation into allegations against the presenter.
The Cabinet Minister told MPs the corporation had acted "inappropriately" when it pulled a Newsnight film into sex abuse claims against the late DJ and broadcaster but said she was "now confident" BBC chiefs were taking the claims "very seriously".
Labour Deputy Leader Harriet Harman said there was widespread "revulsion" that the allegations of systemic assaults took place at the beloved "aunty", the affectionate nickname for the institution, and claimed the star's "exalted" status allowed him to act with impunity.
