Complainant Name:
Mrs Cherie Blair

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mrs Cherie Blair complained, through Atkins solicitors, that an article had contained a quotation inaccurately suggesting that she had offered to help ‘smooth the way’ for the closure of the roads around Whitehall to enable the filming of V for Vendetta, on which her son Euan was working .

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification: “Mrs Blair has asked us to make clear that she was not asked to nor did she offer to assist in obtaining the closure of the roads round Whitehall while her son Euan was working with the crew making the film V for Vendetta, as may have been suggested in part of an article we published on 3rd December last year. Mrs Blair informs us that this would be something she has no influence to do”.

Report: 73
