SERVICES PROVIDED Our statistics for the year are published on page 6 to 9, but these numbers do not give a full picture of the range and type of work that we carry out throughout the year. While much of our work is related to the processing of complaints from readers, there is a lot of informal, or behind the scenes work, that is also carried out, and which represents a very important part of the service we provide. We are always available to give members of the public, editors and journalists, advice about the implementation and general implications of the Code of Practice for Newspapers and Magazines, under which all complaints are considered. We will help to explain the Principles of the Code in more detail, and can discuss with complainants which Principle or Principles might be more appropriate to their complaint.
