PM: BBC chair went through 'rigorous' appointment process

Rishi Sunak has skirted a question over whether he should order a probe into the appointment of Richard Sharp as BBC chairman, after concerns were raised about his role in helping Boris Johnson secure a loan. The PM said: "Appointing the BBC chairman is a rigorous process, it's independent, there's two stages to it, it's transparent and published online and Mr Shap's appointment went through that full process.".
