• An article (Obama in Berlin as Trump talks in Brussels, 12 April, page 23) said that in 2008 Barack Obama spoke to a 100,000-strong crowd at the Victory Column in Berlin. Perhaps twice as many people were present: at the time Spiegel Online said police had estimated that at least 200,000 had turned up to listen to Obama, and several contemporary reports in German newspapers also gave a figure of 200,000 or more.
• We reported (Double first for women in Parliament Square, 14 April, page 6) that Millicent Fawcett “led the constitutional campaign for women’s suffrage between 1866 and 1928”. To clarify: the campaign ran between 1866, the year of a mass petition to parliament, and 1928, when an equal franchise law was passed; Fawcett, who was president of the National Union of Women’s Suffrage Societies from 1897 to 1919, had collected signatures on the 1866 petition, and died in 1929 having devoted her life to the cause.
