Ex-chief says: Don’t help the Royal Albert Hallmain
Richard Lyttleton, the former EMI Classics boss who was once president of the Royal Albert Hall, is unimpressed by its last-ditch appeal for public money to avert bankruptcy.
He tweets today:
If ever there was a case for joined up government, any financial support should be conditional upon the Hall’s trustees acting both legally, in compliance with the Royal Albert Hall Act of 1966, and morally rather to be seen to be making decisions for their own financial gain.
