    Daily Wail article on leader shortage

    Hi Wayne

    Are we campaigning against the paperwork required in the child protection procedures ?

    To-days Daily Mail article lumped Bear's comments about leader shortages in with a campaign group's comments about paperwork and I would appreciate a clarification on what our stance is ?

    also did the Mail pick the one video still showing Explorers in shorts in an otherwise good video or did our PR people issue it that way ?

    Sadly very sloppy and inaccurate reporting by the DM who didn't check facts with us, following pick up by other lazy journalists over the bank holiday weekend, we have written to each Editor, posted http://scouts.org.uk/news/2016/05/th...uting-success/ and I did an interview on BBC 5 Live this morning to address.

    We we do also work with DBS to seem improvement to the system on an ongoing basis.

    Many thanks,
    Wayne

    Thanks Wayne

    It didn't read right, nice to know my instinct was correct, are we ever going to take a stand against the consistent mis-reporting of our movement ?

    As we've shown here, we will challenge where we feel it appropriate. It's often a tough call as we run the risk of drawing more attention to some of the nonsense that gets reported occasionally if we challenge. Thankfully, we get more positive coverage, than negative��
