Lady Judge: Sir Philip Green should pay BHS pensioners

The Chair of the Institute of Directors and former Chair of the Pension Protection Fund, Lady Judge, has told BBC Radio 5 live that Sir Philip Green should “write a cheque” to cover the BHS pension deficit.

Sir Philip sold the store chain for £1 last year but it collapsed under new owners with a pension deficit of £571m.

Lady Judge told BBC Radio 5 live's Wake up to Money: "He should be writing a cheque and saying 'I'm sorry'".

Sir Philip's spokesman did not respond to Lady Judge's comments directly, but did reiterate that he is in discussions with the Pensions Regulator to try to find a solution to the BHS pension scheme.
