Corrections and clarifications

Corrections and clarifications column editor

• A factbox (Gibraltar in numbers, 4 April, page 6) gave the percentage of the population in Gibraltar that is British as 13.2%. To clarify: that is the percentage categorised as “Other British” in the 2012 Gibraltar census; 79% were categorised as Gibraltarians, who are also British citizens.

• We erred in saying that a nitrogen dioxide pollution level of 118.19 micrograms per cubic metre of air was “more than four times” the legal limit of 40 micrograms per cubic metre; that should have said “almost three times” (Revealed: the illegally toxic air at schools, 5 April, page 1).

• Homophone corner: “Israel’s oldest medical cannabis clinic and production company – its name [Tikun Olam] refers to the Jewish religious principal of ‘healing the world’ – has been going for 10 years and has 9,000 patients” (Israeli ‘green rush’ to heal world with medical marijuana, 3 April, page 13).
