It was revealed on 4 February 2015 that Vine received a five-figure sum
for a post-dinner speech at a £250-a-head banquet organised by ADS
Group, the trade organisation that represents defence and security
industries in the UK, and attended by global arms manufacturers.
Campaign Against Arms Trade lodged a formal complaint with the BBC,
claiming a conflict for the organisation appearing to support an
industry which “profits from dictatorships which silence and suppress
debate”. This prompted a BBC response saying: “Jeremy is a freelance
presenter and so can make personal appearances without speaking on
behalf of the BBC, as he did here.” In January 2018 Vine was one of six
male BBC presenters who voluntarily took a pay cut when the gap between
men and women's pay at the BBC was revealed.
