Morrisons's share price rose three per cent today to 177.7p, after figures published yesterday showed the supermarket was the only one of the "big four" whose sales grew over the past 12 weeks.
However, its new chief executive, David Potts, faces a tough questioning by shareholders at its annual general meeting in Bradford tomorrow. Potts is likely to be questioned over the £3m pay package awarded to outgoing chief executive Dalton Philips.
At last year's event, Philips was memorably blasted by the supermarket's founder, Sir Ken Morrison.
"When I left work and started working as a hobby, I chose to raise cattle," he said.
"I have got something like 1,000 bullocks and, having listened to your presentation, Dalton, you've got a lot more bullshit than me."
