An article last week mistakenly named Maria Caulfield among a number of Conservative MPs who had joined the social media platform Parler. In fact, an account in her name was a fake. We apologise for the error (“Revealed: the Tory MPs and commentators who joined banned app Parler”, page 17)

A consumer piece (“Airbnb refuses to pay refunds for getaways cancelled by Covid”, 17 January, page 54) said that Airbnb retains its service fee “even when hosts offer a refund”; to be clear, the company keeps the fee in cases where hosts with no-refund policies nevertheless agree to reimburse a guest who has cancelled, but it does make a refund when the host initiates a cancellation. We also said the booking fee includes cleaning charges, when in fact this charge is set and managed by the host.
