Mr Tim Bonner of the Countryside Alliance complained that the claim that 72% of the population backed the ban on hunting was inaccurate.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a correction making clear that the original figure had been inaccurate and that a February 2005 MORI poll found that 47% of people supported the ban on hunting whilst 26% opposed it.

Report: 73
