Correction notice

We have revised figures relating to quarter 1 of 2013 and February and March 2013 in table 10 ‘Brick production, deliveries and stocks by English region, Wales and Scotland’ following a publication production error. Table 9 ‘Bricks: production, deliveries and stocks’, which presents some of the same information as table 10 for Great Britain, is correct and has not been changed.

This document, published on 4 July 2012, has been corrected accordingly. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
