The Oban Times apologises for the misrepresentation of the views of David Gallant in the headline of a story that appeared in the newspaper on March 24, 2017, in regard to podiatry services.
In a headline, the newspaper misrepresented Mr Gallant’s view of the importance of personal care provided by the local authority. The newspaper claimed in the headline that Mr Gallant’s view was that his toenails were more important than Christmas. He did not say this. In fact he was making a serious point about priorities in local government spending.
