Publication: The Daily Telegraph


Professor Paul Ekins of the Green Fiscal Commission complained that the newspaper had described the organisation as "government-supported" when it was both structurally and financially independent of government, and its policies were not approved of by the government in any official capacity.


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

Following our 27 October coverage of green tax proposals by the Green Fiscal Commission (GFC) we have been asked to make clear the GFC is not government-supported.
