Complainant Name:
Baroness Hayman PC

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Times

Complaint:

Baroness Hayman PC complained to the Press Complaints Commission through Swan Turton Solicitors of London that an article which made reference to her expenses claims inaccurately stated that she had claimed 200,000 "on a house in Norfolk" and implied that she had chaired a committee on allowances for peers while under investigation herself regarding her own claims.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the words relating to the complainant from the online version of the article. The newspaper also gave an assurance that the words/allegations would not be repeated in the future and placed a note of the position on its archive.
