Mr Robert Bryce complaint to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, about an article which inaccurately reported that a letter from Jose Manuel Barroso had been sent to the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee. In fact, the letter was still to be sent, and had arrived the following week.
The complaint was resolved as the newspaper had published the following correction and apology:
"In a report yesterday headlined "Brussels: separate Scotland must apply to join EU" we said that the European Commission had written a letter to the House of Lords economic affairs committee saying it was its view that if Scotland voted for independence, then the newly-created independent state would have to apply for membership of the EU in the normal manner.
