Complainant Name:
Ms Josephine Quintavalle of CORE (Comment on Reproductive Ethics)

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Daily Telegraph

Complaint:
Ms Josephine Quintavalle of CORE (Comment on Reproductive Ethics) complained that an article had inaccurately suggested that its court action against the HFEA (Human Fertilisation and Embryo Authority) was focused upon a particular case in which a family were seeking to select a test tube baby with the correct tissue type to treat their ill son rather than a point of general principal. In fact, the case was a judicial review of a policy decision of the HFEA.

Resolution:
The newspaper undertook to amend its library records to reflect the distinction. A subsequent article on the subject incorporated some of the points raised in the complaint.

Report: 62
