Page 41, sir, fifth paragraph, which says:

"Over the last five years we found 9,600 entries, of which less than 1 per cent, ie 68, related to gifts and hospitalities or gratuities and hospitality received from the media. That involved 23 forces."

The 23 forces bit is right. What I found out this lunchtime was that it had only included a certain amount of time from the Metropolitan Police and not the whole of the five years. The whole of the five years for the Metropolitan Police includes another 230 of those. That's not a reflection on the Metropolitan Police, by the way. It's our error, not theirs.
