Jo Stevens responds to reports that Robbie Gibb tried to block a senior BBC editorial appointment

Jo Stevens MP, Labour’s Shadow Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, responding to reports that Robbie Gibb tried to block a senior BBC editorial appointment, said:

“These allegations raise very serious questions about Conservative cronyism at the heart of the BBC.

“If Robbie Gibb is in post to further Tory interests rather than the public interest, then he is in the wrong job.

“Oliver Dowden must join the calls for him to resign or the BBC must sack him immediately for the sake of its own integrity.”
