A word was inadvertently deleted from table 1 during the authors' final revision of this Primary Care paper by Keith Hawton and colleagues, and this deletion may have confused readers (6 November, pp 1076-9). The first two column headings suggested that the numbers cited were totals for each of the four year groups, whereas in fact they were annual rates. The headings should therefore read: “Annual mortality before legislation” and “Annual mortality after legislation.”
