PARIS (Reuters) – French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire on Thursday criticised a reported bumper pay deal for Tom Enders, the outgoing chief executive of planemaker Airbus.

“We’re talking about excessive amounts here,” Le Maire told BFM TV.

Le Monde newspaper earlier reported that Enders could get a golden parachute farewell pay deal worth 36.8 million euros (£31 million).
