Complainant Name:
Farquhar MacBeath

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Scottish Sun


Farquhar MacBeath complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article in The Scottish Sun had inaccurately attributed to him a statement that had been made by Jamie McGrigor MSP.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC helped negotiate the following correction:

Farquhar MacBeath:

In a story headlined Farmer's Bird Plea on November 13, 2009, we attributed a quote to Farquhar MacBeath. The quote was actually made by Jamie McGrigor MSP. We are happy to clarify the matter.
