Dear Mr McNulty

Reference CAS-2854164-81M5MF

Thanks for contacting us again regarding ‘BBC News at Six’ on 22 July.

Please accept our apologies for the long delay in replying. We know our correspondents appreciate a quick response and are sorry you’ve had to wait on this occasion.

We raised your complaint with the relevant editorial team in our newsroom, who have given us the below response.

“We very often cover ONS figures, and IMF ones , and whether they get on on a particular day will be down to a range of factors including the news agenda that day. Over time, we take care to report trends in both the deficit and in growth.”

We hope this addresses your concerns; however, if you would like to take your complaint further, you can contact Stage 2 of the complaints process, the BBC’s Editorial Complaints Unit, within 20 working days and they will carry out an independent investigation. You can email them at: , or alternatively write to them at the following address:
