The Sunday Telegraph (p21) contained the following apology:

After our article of March 16, entitled 'Hot cross banned: councils decree buns could be 'offensive' to non-Christians', the councils concerned - Tower Hamlets, Liverpool, York, Wolverhampton, Wakefield and Birmingham - have asked us to point out that none of them has an official policy on hot cross buns and that their councillors have never discussed banning hot cross buns, nor have they ever instructed council caterers not to serve hot cross buns in schools.

'Where council catering managers were quoted as saying that hot cross buns were not being served, for whatever reason, this was not as a consequence of any council policy.

'We apologise for any confusion'.
