Complainant Name:
Councillors John Cullen and Bill Hinds

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Salford Advertiser

Councillors John Cullen and Bill Hinds complained that an article had inaccurately suggested that they had failed to attend a public meeting despite receiving personal invitations.

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a clarification which made clear that the complainants had not received personal invitations and it was not for the reason of a lack of party political balance that Councillor Hinds did not attend the meeting.

Report: 71
