Complainant Name:
Andrew Dismore MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Barnet Press

Complaint:

Andrew Dismore MP complained that the newspaper had published a reader’s letter that contained inaccurate claims about the work he had done on behalf of a constituent.

Resolution:

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

We have been asked to point out that a letter by Mr M Gandhi, published on December 7 and headlined “MP Dismore failed me”, may have presented a misleading assessment of the incident being referred to. Andrew Dismore MP has asked us to point out that rather than writing just one letter in relation to the matter raised by his constituent, as published, he wrote three letters, which resolved the situation as far as was practicable, and offered his services to his constituent if further action was required. This offer was not taken up and the matter was considered closed.

Report: 74
