Publication: Daily Mirror

Complaint:

Dr Nicholas Fenwick, Policy Officer of the Farmers’ Union of Wales, complained that an article which reported on an investigation into live veal exports by Compassion in World Farming contained inaccuracies.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction: ‘In our article on 26 June 2006 “Return of the vile veal trade” we reported on an investigation into veal exports by Compassion in World Farming incorrectly stating that a shipment of 1,000 calves were collected from Carmarthen livestock market. The shipment numbered less than a thousand and were neither bought nor collected from the market. When in Holland, we can confirm that calves did receive some roughage and iron in their diet, contrary to our report’.

Report: 74
