Complainant Name:
Mr Dale Hardie

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Scottish Mail on Sunday


Mr Dale Hardie complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had incorrectly implied that public sector workers in Scotland were awarded the St Andrew's Day holiday as an additional paid holiday. The majority of workers had to take it in lieu of another holiday.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification:

On 13 November, we reported that tens of thousands of public sector workers were being given an extra paid day off on St Andrews Day. We are happy to make clear only some public sector workers received an additional day of holiday.
