Corrections and clarifications
• 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).
