Complainant Name:
John Young MSP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Record

Complaint:
John Young MSP complained that an article which claimed a fellow Conservative MSP had sent an offensive Christmas email greeting to all his party colleagues was inaccurate and the accompanying editorial, therefore, misleading in its comment.

Resolution:
The newspaper published a letter of reply from the complainant which stressed that the article’s claim was the first he had been made aware of the greeting and that he refuted the generalisation regarding the conduct of all Conservative MSPs made in relation to the incident.

Report: 53
