Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


Mr Phillip Edwards from Wrexham complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article which reported that the NHS paid £32.27 per loaf of non-gluten bread. He explained that the quoted figure represented the price for several loaves, the actual cost per loaf being £2.82.


The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the online article, as well as the publication of the following correction:

We reported on July 19 that the NHS paid £32.27 per loaf of non-gluten bread, given on prescription to sufferers of coeliac disease. In fact, the cost per loaf is around £2.82, £32 being for an average prescription of several loaves. We are happy to make this clear.
