The Pandora column on 8 and 23 August referred to Ian McCartney and his advisory work for Fluor. We have been asked to make it clear that Mr McCartney personally receives none of the remuneration for this role: part of the fee is used to employ someone in the House of Commons from his Makerfield constituency and the rest is used to support the Women's Interlink Foundation ( www.womensinterlinkfoundation.org ), a charity based in India which provides disadvantaged women and children with drinking water, health treatments, housing and education. We apologise to Mr McCartney for not including this information in the letter we published from him and for the subsequent misleading Pandora item.
