Sally Low of Low Associates Ltd complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had wrongly listed her company as a "lobbyist" group representing the British Chambers of Commerce.


The complained was resolved when the newspaper permanently removed the online version of the article and carried the following statement on its website and in print:

Low Associates have contacted us to make clear their position - as set out on their website - that "We do not lobby government (i.e. seek to influence or amend legislation or policy) on behalf of our clients." ('The shady world of lobbying', October 22).
