“And he asks me ‘is that absolutely fair?’ or ‘can you really justify that to everybody watching?’

“Emily is one of the great broadcasters of her generation, a really great broadcaster.

“But the BBC decided she crossed the line and the people taking that decision are very, very experienced.

“Beyond that, I’m not going to wade in. It’s been a media story that’s gone on for too long.”

The Newsnight presenter was found to have violated the BBC’s impartiality guidelines following her monologue on Dominic Cummings last week.

In her introduction to last Tuesday’s show, Maitlis said Mr Cummings had “broken the rules” when he travelled from London to Durham during lockdown and “the country can see that, and it’s shocked the Government cannot”.

The BBC said the monologue “did not meet our standards of due impartiality”.

Maitlis returned to Newsnight on Monday, but did not mention the row during a show focusing on the protests that have broken out across the US in response to the death of an unarmed black man.

MPs have aired their frustrations over the controversial lockdown trip made by the Prime Minister’s top adviser Dominic Cummings.

Following the Whitsun recess, Tuesday was the first time MPs could speak in the Commons about Mr Cummings’ trip from London to Durham, which was revealed in the press last month.

SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford called for Mr Cummings to be shown the door.

He said: “The Prime Minister has destroyed his own ‘stay home and save lives’ message.”

Mr Blackford added that Mr Cummings has “undermined efforts” to reduce the spread of coronavirus and that “people are breaking the rules as a result”.

Tory MP Craig Whittaker (Calder Valley), a former Government whip, asked if the Government’s Covid-19 strategy has been damaged by the Cummings affair.
