Mr Norman Parkes

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Guardian


Mr Norman Parkes complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper implied that a "mohel" was a medical expert. He considered that a third party such as the "mohel", whose references had not been clearly stated, should not offer advice in regard to circumcision.


The complainant was satisfied that the newspaper's response, which said that the article made clear that the "mohel" was a religious official and not a medical professional, resolved the matter.
