Complainant Name:
The Rt Hon Stephen Byers MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

The Rt Hon Stephen Byers MP complained that an article about a DTI investigation into companies associated with Geoffrey Robinson MP had inaccurately stated that the complainant had known about the contents of the report and wrongly suggested that he had suppressed it.

The matter was resolved when the newspaper published a clarification, making clear the true position that as Mr Byers had ruled himself out of any involvement in the inquiry on the advice of his Permanent Secretary, he could not have suppressed its contents from Parliament.

Report: 56
