Complainant Name:
Lord Morris

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Times

Complaint:

Lord Morris of Manchester complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article about his allowance claims was inaccurate and misleading.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction:

An article of November 1, 2009 stated that, despite owning a house in London, Lord Morris of Manchester had claimed 100,000 in allowances by designating his house in Manchester as his main address. We now accept that it was his main home for 12 years and that the reason for the re-designation of his main home to London in April 2008 was due to serious ill health. There is no suggestion of any impropriety, financial or otherwise, on his part.
