Complainant Name:
Alderman Iris Robinson MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Times

Complaint:
Alderman Iris Robinson MP MLA complained that a report that she had earned a ‘double censure’ from the House of Commons speaker was inaccurate.

Resolution:
The newspaper publicly clarified its understanding of the deputy speaker’s comments, which were that allowing a speech to be quoted in the press before it was published was ‘not a practice that the chair would encourage’, and accepted that this did not amount to a ‘double censure’ of her.

Report: 60
