Complainant Name:
The Hon Ald Gordon B Caselton

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Hull Daily Mail

The Hon Ald Gordon B Caselton complained that an article was incorrect in stating that planning permission had been granted for a local pub. In fact, no decision had, at the time of publication, been made on the issue.

The newspaper published a correction and apology and, subsequently, a follow-up article. Procedures were put in place to ensure that direct complaints to the newspaper did not go unseen in the way Mr Caseltons had.

Report: 61
