Complainant Name:
Mr Alan Clements

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Mail on Sunday

Complaint:
Mr Alan Clements of Glasgow complained that the newspaper had incorrectly stated that he ‘led’ Scottish Enterprise Glasgow (he is merely a non-executive director), in an article that referred to his wife Kirsty Wark being paid to work as a conference host by the organisation. Mr Clements was concerned that the article implied that he had been involved in the hiring of Ms Wark when, in fact, he had no personal involvement at all.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a clarification.

Report: 70
