Complainant Name:
Ms Jan Hamilton

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Jan Hamilton of Lancashire complained that an article reporting on her successful gender discrimination case against the army contained inaccuracies.

Resolution:

The newspaper published the following clarification on its website:

Jan Hamilton: An article on 31 May may have suggested that Jan Hamilton had sought £250k for hurt feelings in her industrial action against the MoD. We are happy to clarify that Ms Hamilton neither sought nor received £250k for hurt feelings.

In addition, the newspaper removed the article from its website, marked the newspaper’s cuttings and made a donation to a service charity. The complaint was resolved on that basis.

Report:

77
