    Catch-up (August): Lords committee critical of BBC Trust

    In early August, the House of Lords Communications Committee published its first report - that on the creation of the BBC Trust and specifically the manner in which the current Chairman, Sir Michael Lyons, was appointed (1). The Committee was disturbed that the appointment had not been subject to parliamentary oversight nor debated in Parliament (a democratic deficit that it hoped would be reduced by Government in the longer term); they were also conducting their review in the wake of Michael Grade's defection to ITV.
