• The CEO of the outdoor clothing company Patagonia is Rose Marcario, not Rose Marciano as we had it (Saving the world – one puffer jacket at a time, 7 March, page 25).

• A piece about the effect on the government’s finances of a cut in the “Ogden” discount rate, which is used in the calculation of personal injury compensation payments, gave the previous rate as 2%. It was in fact 2.5%; it is being cut to -0.75% (More pain for NHS, 9 March, page 6).

• Our obituary of the artist and activist Gustav Metzger (4 March, page 40) misnamed one of his sisters, Klara, as Sara.

• Because of an editing error, an Opinion piece (Austerity has made docile infants of us all, 10 March, page 33) said corporate profits in Britain are “around £30bn a year”. They are in fact more than 10 times that amount.

• One-third of Anglican priests in Sheffield are women, not two-thirds as we said in a report (Bishop in female clergy row turns down promotion, 10 March, page 11).
