Barclays Plc’s board will ask former Chief Executive Officer Bob Diamond to give up at least part of a possible 17-million-pound ($26.3 million) exit compensation package, the Sunday Telegraph reported, without saying where it got the information.

Discussions have taken place with the Association of British Insurers, the trade group that represents pension fund investments, the newspaper said.

Barclays spokesman Giles Croot declined to comment.
