Corrections and clarifications

Corrections and clarifications column editor

• A feature about racial diversity in the acting world (True colour, 15 April, page 16, Review) suggested incorrectly that The Wars of the Roses plays directed by Trevor Nunn in 2015 were produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company. The plays were staged at the Rose theatre in Kingston upon Thames.

• Martin Pointer QC was the barrister who, in a 2001 appeal court hearing about a divorce settlement, referred to “people who have the spark of genius”. Because of an editing error, we misnamed him as Michael (What do these men all have in common? They think they have the spark of genius, 15 April, page 7).

• The tennis player Gilles Müller is from Luxembourg, not Belgium as we said (Murray fit for Monte Carlo in buildup to French Open, 15 April, page 12, Sport).

• The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? is at the Haymarket theatre, London, until 24 June, not 3 June as we said in a footnote on a feature about Damian Lewis (My family values, 15 April, page 8, Family).

• In the heading on a classical album review (21 April, page 27, G2), we meant to use the German word lieder (songs) but said leider (unfortunately).

• An article (Why have young people gone off milk?, 4 April, erred in saying that the Food Standards Agency had found that 46% of 16- to 24-year-olds now believe they are allergic to cow’s milk compared with 8% of people aged over 75. The FSA survey data indicates that 7.82% of those aged 16-24 and 1.36% of those aged over 75 reported an adverse reaction to or avoided cow’s milk and cow’s milk products because of the adverse reaction they might cause. In both age groups, 17% said they had an adverse reaction to certain foods, or avoided certain foods because of the adverse reaction they might cause. Of those 17% in each group, 46% in the 16-24 age group and 8% in the over-75 age group said they had an adverse reaction to cow’s milk and cow’s milk products.
