Cor­rec­tions and clar­i­fi­ca­tions

The Guardian - - LETTERS -

• We in­cluded Soli­hull in a list of coun­cils that have closed their lo­cal wel­fare schemes in a piece about a re­cent re­port from the Cen­tre for Re­spon­si­ble Credit. Soli­hull coun­cil has not closed its scheme, and was in­cluded in the CfRC’s re­port in er­ror (Lo­cal wel­fare schemes in melt­down, 13 Septem­ber, page 36). • An ar­ti­cle about John Clancy’s res­ig­na­tion (Birm­ing­ham coun­cil leader quits over ‘bin war’ fail­ure, 12 Septem­ber, page 12) said that Sa­jid Javid, the com­mu­ni­ties sec­re­tary, de­manded a meet­ing with Clancy to dis­cuss the city’s bin strike. Javid’s let­ter to the coun­cil’s im­prove­ment panel asked for an ur­gent up­date, not for a meet­ing. • When the tem­per­a­ture in San Fran­cisco reached 106F this year, its record was beaten by 3F, not by 3C as we said (Do you re­ally need more warn­ings about cli­mate change?, 11 Septem­ber, page 25).
