In Alex Paton's book review (of David Craig's Plundering the Public Sector: How New Labour are Letting Consultants Run Off with £70 Billion of our Money), we somehow failed to make a couple of requested changes to this article (BMJ 2006;333:266, 29 Jul). In the second paragraph, the stated earnings of management consultants from the UK government were lower—by a factor 10—than they should have been. They apparently earn £10 000-£25 000 a week. At the end of the third paragraph, the figure of 23 million refers to attendances (not admissions). In addition, we have spotted that we mucked about with the spelling of “minuscule” in the time honoured way.
