Complainant Name:
Mr Richard Kamm

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Guardian


Mr Richard Kamm complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately stated that the Chief Regulator of Ofqual had laid out an "emergency rescue package" for the new diploma qualifications. The complainant considered that the Regulator's statements did not support this interpretation, and that she had merely been laying out principles to guide ongoing development of the qualifications.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper provided a response describing its reasons for interpreting the report in the manner it had, which included background conversations, general knowledge of the underlying issues, and reference to an article in another publication which gave more detail in support of the newspaper's interpretation.
