Complainant Name:
Tony Moran

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Times

Tony Moran of Walsall Council complained that an article about the New Art Gallery Walsall misled readers into believing that the gallery was facing closure unless it found additional financial backing and raised visitor numbers.

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a statement making clear that the council had not, as yet, sought further Arts Council finance to assist the running of the gallery and that targets for visitor numbers had been exceeded. It also put forward the councils position that there had never been any prospect of the gallery closing and expressed regret for any problems caused by the report.

Report: 65
