Publication: Community Care


Mr Hilton Dawson on behalf of the British Association of Social Workers (BASW) complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an inaccurate, misleading and distorted account of the proceedings of the Education Select Committee held on 8 November 2011 because it had elevated the remarks of one of the witnesses and had overlooked questions asked by MPs.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper offered to publish a letter from the complainant and published an article on the work of the BASW which the complainant considered to be full and fair.
