Complainant Name:
Mrs Margaret Dickson

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: Scottish Daily Mail


Mrs Margaret Dickson complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published inaccuracies by attributing statements to her husband which he had not made.


The newspaper believed the quotations to be accurate, whilst the complainant disputed them. The matter was resolved when the newspaper agreed to remove the online version of the article and to mark its internal archive to make it clear that the quotations were disputed.
