The Scottish critic Ken Walton has an interesting letter in the Times. He points out that players in the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra are paid an average £30,000 a year, a total wage bill of £2.1 million.
That is slightly less than the fee paid each year to one entertainment host, Chris Evans, who earns £2.2m.
Value for money, BBC?
