Complainant Name:
Mrs Lynn Ellard

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Ms Lynn Ellard complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, about an article which had inaccurately reported that disabled people were exempt from the so-called "bedroom tax".


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction in the newspaper and online:

A comment article on 14 March suggested that all disabled people will be exempt from the Government's so-called ‘bedroom tax'. We are happy to clarify that the exemption applies only to the parents of severely disabled children who are unable to share a room.
