Complainant Name:
David Blunkett MP

Clauses Noted: 1, 4

Publication: Evening Standard

Complaint:

The Right Honourable David Blunkett MP complained that the newspaper had reported claims about him, which he had denied, without including reference to his denial. He was also concerned that the newspaper had produced incessant coverage about him, which amounted – in his view – to harassment.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction:

In a Londoner’s Diary item on 5 October it was said that Heidi Kingstone had revealed that David Blunkett gave unflattering views about his former Cabinet colleagues. We have been asked to say Mr Blunkett denies ever giving these views.

Report: 74
