Complainant Name:
Bill Wiggin MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Daily Telegraph

Complaint:

Bill Wiggin MP complained to the Press Complaints Commission that a comment piece was inaccurate and misleading when it stated that he had been "found guilty of dishonesty".

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following apology, in the newspaper and online, together with the removal of the original article from its website:

Following "It's time to show him the door, Dave" (Nov 13, 2010), we wish to make clear that Bill Wiggin MP was not, as we mistakenly reported, found guilty of dishonesty by any official body for specifying his second home as his main residence to get a parking permit. We apologise for this misunderstanding.
