In our issue 10 November we published a feature headed 'King Faces Shaky Comparisons' in which a source was quoted as suggesting that the decision to transfer Sainsbury's headquarters from Holborn to Kings Cross was influenced by the travel requirements of Sainsbury's chief executive, Justin King. Sainsbury has asked us to make clear, and we are happy to accept, that there was no basis for this assertion and that it should not have been published. We apologise unreservedly to Justin King and J. Sainsbury plc and sincerely regret any offence caused.
