Complainant Name:
Network Private Hire

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mail


Network Private Hire complained to the Press Complaints Commission through Bannatyne, Kirkwood, France & Co Solicitors that an article had stated inaccurately that James Baxter was a boss and a major share-holder of Network Private Hire. In fact he had only ever been a minority share-holder and was not a director of the company.


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


We recently reported on James Baxter, formerly a share-holder of Network Private Hire. We would like to clarify that Mr Baxter never had direct ownership of the Company, was only a minority share-holder, and was never a director or boss of Network Private Hire.
