Complainant Name:
Croydon Council

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Croydon Guardian

Complaint:

Croydon Council complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had misrepresented a cut to the council's funding of its Family Justice Centre. The newspaper incorrectly claimed that a central Government grant would make up the shortfall in the funding to the centre; in fact, the cut in council funding had been made only after the Government grant had been received and therefore there had been no shortfall in funding.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper offered the council the opportunity to submit a letter for publication in which it could set out its position.
