Complainant Name:
Ms Noelette Keane

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Express

Complaint:
Ms Noelette Keane, the London Development Officer for the Irish Traveller Movement in Britain, complained that the newspaper had inaccurately reported an alleged movement of 8000 Irish Travellers to England. She disputed this figure, as Irish Travellers were not monitored as a separate group within the census.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper which had taken its figure from the comments of two Irish MPs published a letter from the complainant.

Report: 70
