Complainant Name:
Mr Andy Anderson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Herald (Glasgow)

Complaint:

Mr Andy Anderson of Dunoon complained that a review of his book The Skye Bridge Story a record of the history of the campaign of resistance to the Skye Bridge tolls may have misled readers into believing that he was associated with the current campaign by Robbie The Pict for a public inquiry. In fact, the complainant emphasised that he was strongly opposed to this campaign.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following letter from the complainant:


My book, which was reviewed by The Herald (Ask not for whom the bridge tolls July 26) has no connection with the group campaigning at present for a public inquiry into the Skye Bridge tolls. I consider it a nonsense to ask the Scottish Government to spend public money on examining old Westminster legislation.

Report: 78
