Clarifications and corrections

The average issue of the Daily Mail contains around 80,000 words - the equivalent of a paperback book – most of which are written on the day under tremendous pressure of deadlines.

Huge efforts are made to ensure our journalism meets the highest possible standards of accuracy but it is inevitable that mistakes do occur.

This column provides an opportunity to correct those errors quickly and prominently.


The parliamentary sketch on Thursday March 22 made reference to Gordon Brown’s tax affairs. We are pleased to confirm that Mr Brown receives no personal income from any of his speeches or writings. All income from those activities goes to The Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown Ltd to support their charitable and public service work. We accept that Mr Brown has no company structure in place in order to avoid tax and that he and the Company pay all taxes due.
