Complainant Name:
Mr Tom Griffiths

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr Tom Griffiths complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. He complained that the newspaper had incorrectly claimed in an online article that flexitime in the civil service was new; in fact it had been in place for a long time.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the alteration of the headline and the publication of the following statement at the foot of the article:

The headline of this article has been amended to make clear it referred to new flexitime arrangements rather than suggesting flexitime was new.
