Complainant Name:
Mark Pritchard MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard

Complaint:

Mr Mark Pritchard, Member of Parliament for The Wrekin, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that a comment item was inaccurate and misleading when it suggested that he had visited certain countries at the taxpayer's expense.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following wording in the same column:

I may have given the impression, in a previous item, that Mark Pritchard MP had visited Belize, Gibraltar and Turks and Caicos islands at the taxpayer's expense. I am happy to clarify that he has never visited these countries.
