• Remarks attributed to Professor David Bailey, of Aston Business School in Birmingham, published on 24 September 2016 in an item of commercial paid content about a specific brand and model of car, were made by him on a good faith understanding that the comments were for an editorial purpose not a commercial purpose. His interviewer had not been clear. As an academic, Professor Bailey provides independent commentary on car industry matters but endorses no particular brands.

• An article (Britain’s four school systems all march to a different drumbeat, 28 February, page 33) suggested that pupils cannot be excluded from school in Scotland, contrasting this with the situation in England. To clarify: they can be excluded in Scotland, but the rate of permanent exclusions, known as “removals from register”, is much lower than in England.
