Complainant Name:
Deaconsbank Residents Association

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Glaswegian

Complaint:

Ms Sharon Krieger, Secretary of the Deaconsbank Residents Association, complained about a reader’s letter which inaccurately claimed the organisation had turned down an offer from the council to provide recreational facilities for youngsters.

Resolution:

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

Contrary to a letter published on 10 August, Deaconsbank Residents Association has asked us to make clear that it has neither received – nor, therefore, opposed – any proposal from Glasgow City Council in regard to a play area in the Deaconsbank Area. We apologise for any confusion.

Report: 74
