Complainant Name:
Mr Nick Palmer, MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Express

Complaint:
Mr Nick Palmer, MP for Broxtowe, complained that a headline which referred to ‘mad new laws’ – in regard to burglars’ rights following the Tony Martin case – was misleading as no new laws had been proposed. The story related to a legal argument as to whether existing laws should prevent the early release of prisoners who might be a threat towards those who robbed them.

Resolution:
The newspaper published a clarification that no new laws had in fact been proposed.

Report: 62
