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.
