MP David Amess
7:33am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
ON July 22, the Echo reported Southend West MP David Amess was behind a House of Commons motion calling for Andy Murray to be knighted after winning the men’s final at Wimbledon.
It is true Mr Amess sponsored an early day motion praising Andy Murray, supported by 24 fellow MPs. However, he did not call for Andy Murray to be knighted.
The Echo also published the story online and later published a reader’s letter based on the news story.
We wish to apologise for the error, allowing the resulting letter to be published and for comments posted on the online story
