Corrections and clarifications

Corrections and clarifications column editor

• A leader article (The short parliament ends: now the unnecessary election, 27 April, page 28) mistakenly said the Labour member for Wansbeck, Ian Lavery, is retiring. This is not the case, Lavery having announced he will stand again at the general election. It also incorrectly stated that he was the chair of the business committee. The person in that role is his fellow Labour MP Iain Wright; Lavery is a shadow Cabinet Office minister.

• In a feature about plans for a Stonehenge road tunnel (‘A monstrous act of desecration is brewing’, 26 April, page 10, G2) an archaeologist was quoted referring to the possibility of organic matter, such as animal bones, being “deoxygenated” and degrading because of a falling water table; “reoxygenated”, that should have been.

• A panel accompanying an article about Joey Barton’s football ban for gambling listed the Premier League clubs sponsored by, or in a “partnership” with, betting firms. It wrongly included the Leicester City sponsor King Power, which is a Thai travel retail group (Playing ball, 27 April, page 3).
