Sir Simon Milton, the Leader of Westminster Council, has secured a full apology from Private Eye in respect of false allegations that he was under investigation by the District Auditor following the Council’s settlement with Dame Shirley Porter over the ‘homes for votes’ scandal.

In April 2007, Sir Simon also secured a full apology and damages from the Oldie magazine (co-founded by Richard Ingrams, the former editor of Private Eye) in respect of similar allegations.
