Complainant Name:
Mr John Purvis MEP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Times


Mr John Purvis MEP complained that the newspaper had inaccurately reported the amount he would receive as a transition payment upon retiring from the European Parliament, stating it as £86,352 rather than the correct figure of £32,383.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper explained how it had arrived at the figure, and the complainant accepted that the newspapers figure was likely to be substantially accurate.

Report: 79
