ANGUS GIBB AGAINST CONTACT

The Press Council has not upheld a complaint from Mr Angus Gibb against Contact.

Mr Gibb had written a letter to the editor on 12 July 2001. Mr Gibb complained when his letter was not published. The editor said there was likely to be little public interest in what Mr Gibb had written.

The Press Council did not uphold the complaint on the grounds that editors have the right to select letters for publication. There was nothing in Mr Gibb’s letter or follow-up correspondence which justifies any exception to this well established rule.
