Default BBC to be grilled by Hutton - Guardian newspaper


Dyke to face Hutton inquiry

Friday September 12, 2003

Greg Dyke will appear before the Hutton inquiry for the first time on
Monday, when he is likely to quizzed about why he stood by Andrew
Gilligan's report on the Iraq dossier despite doubts from the
corporation's governors.

The appearance of the BBC's director general will drag the
corporation back into the spotlight and focus on its role in the
events that led to the death of David Kelly.

The decision to call Mr Dyke, who is one of four new witnesses named
today, came as a surprise - he had been expected to escape an
appearance after the corporation's head of news, Richard Sambrook,
gave evidence last month.

Mr Dyke will be expected to explain how the series of events leading
up to Dr Kelly's death unfolded.

And he will be challenged over why he and the BBC chairman, Gavyn
Davies, opted to go on the attack following calls from the government
for an apology over Gilligan's claims that former communications
chief Alastair Campbell "***ed up" the dossier.

Some commentators have questioned Mr Dyke's judgement in squaring up
to the government, believing he should have brokered a solution
earlier.

Last Sunday former Daily Telegraph editor Sir Max Hastings said the
buck should stop with Mr Dyke and that if anybody from the BBC should
resign, it should be him.
