Complainant Name:
Mr Graham Allen MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror


Mr Graham Allen, Member of Parliament for Nottingham North, complained that an article about an Early Day Motion he had tabled in regard to MPs' wages was inaccurate and misleading.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction:

On November 12 we suggested that MPs had launched a bid for an inflation-busting pay rise as part of a Commons motion tabled by Graham Allen MP. Although Graham Allen has previously called for MPs' wages to be linked to those of other jobs, this was not the intention of his motion. This did not request any wage increase: it asked for an independent body to set MPs' wages. We are happy to set the record straight.
