Complainant Name:
Mr David Mills

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:
Mr David Mills of London complained that the newspaper had inaccurately accused him of breaching the Ministerial Code, following a report that a civil servant for the Department of Culture, Media and Sport sent out a press release on his behalf. He made clear that he had not solicited the issue of the press release and the accusation that he had commandeered the resources of a civil servant for personal purposes, and so abused taxpayers’ money, was false.

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

Report: 71
