A typing error was discovered in the commentary within the Second Estimate of Gross Domestic Product, 1st quarter 2012 statistical bulletin, originally published at 9.30am on 24 May 2012. On page 7 of the statistical bulletin the text affected is the sentence 'Including the alignment adjustment, the level of inventories increased by £1.2 billion in the latest quarter', this statement should have been 'decreased'.
All associated text, growth rates and publication tables were correct at the time of publishing, and the error has now been corrected. ONS apologises for any inconvenience caused.
