Yellow card Peter Willis, president of the Referees' Association, has asked us to make it clear that he did not make the remark attributed to a spokesman for the RA in the article "Sacked Asian referee fights FA racism" (21 November). The comment was made by an employee of the organisation, which did not make any official statement.

Votes for women Last week New Zealand was described as "the first country to introduce female franchise, in 1893" ("Women fight it out in NZ poll", 21 November). Women in the Isle of Man have been entitled to the vote since 1880.
