Complainant Name:
Mr John Patrick

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Southern Reporter

Complaint:

Mr John Patrick of Scotland for Animals complained that the newspaper had published inaccurate statements regarding a number of signatories to pro-forma letters - provided by his charity - objecting to a planning application for a large chicken farm. He said that, contrary to these statements, only 6 of the 483 complaints had been found to be inadmissible, rather than 12, and that the signatories had had full knowledge of the application to which they were objecting.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when it was established that the newspaper had published a letter the complainant had submitted to it in response to his concerns.

Report: 80
