Complainant Name:
Ms Ruth Spiller

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Express

Complaint:

Ms Ruth Spiller of the design company Cod Steaks complained that an article reporting on proposals made by the company for a £50,000 piece of public art in Poole contained the inaccurate claim that the project was being funded by the taxpayer.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved by the publication of the following statement:

Artwork at Retail Park

Following our article “Dishes clean YOU out of £50,000” on November 20, 2008, in which we said that the taxpayer would be footing the bill for new artwork at a Poole retail park, we would like to make it clear that the cost of the work will be borne privately by the owners of the site.

Report: 78
