The Government is considering bringing RTÉ under the remit of the State's auditor.

This would mean more control over how the Broadcaster spends its money.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar told a Fine Gael meeting last night that RTE may be brought under the remit of the Comptroller and Auditor General.

The State body makes public funds are well managed and its annual report is also scrutinised by the Public Accounts Committee.

It comes as RTE confirms its received full legal advice about details of exit packages and has briefed the media minister about what can and can't be published.

It's believed this legal advice says a court order would be needed to reveal details of staff's exit packages that contained confidentiality clauses.
