Suggesting corrections to published Official Reports
If a member or a witness is concerned that the draft Official Report of a meeting does not accurately reflect what they said, they may ask us to review it. They may suggest corrections:
- in person
- by email or
- by sending us a marked-up printout.
Please do not send a track-changes file.
The editor will consider whether suggested corrections adhere to our remit and house style. Speakers may not:
- change the sense of what they said or
- make substantial amendments
if the Official Report accurately reflects what was said.
If approved, suggested corrections will be incorporated in the archive Official Report, which is published in due course on the Parliament's website.
Members may correct inaccurate information supplied during a meeting
If a member supplies incorrect information that the Official Report is unable to correct under its remit, they may take advantage of the members' corrections mechanism recommended by the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee's 7th report (session 3).
The members' corrections guidance (163KB pdf) gives more detail about how to request a correction.
