Mr Geoff Wade of the Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore complained that an interview with author Gavin Menzies was inaccurate when it claimed that both his books 1421 and 1434 would be part of Key Stage 3 history for 11-14 year-olds.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper which removed the reference from the online version of the article published the following clarification:

Contrary to claims contained in our Aug 1 interview (Mad as a snake or a visionary), Gavin Menzies books 1421 and 1434 are not specified as part of the syllabus for Key Stage 3 History.

Report: 78
