New survey suggests people favour cap on bosses' pay

As the row over RBS Chief Executive, Stephen Hester's £1m share bonus continues, a poll released today suggests most people favour a cap on bosses' pay.

The survey of over 2,000 adults by the independent monitoring body, the High Pay Centre, also found that two-thirds wanted to rein in "crony capitalism".

Almost as many did not believe that top pay rates were set in an open and transparent way.
