An errata was published on 21/07/2014 to correct the text as follows:

- a higher proportion of food and drink is purchased on promotion by the most affluent households in Scotland as shown in Figure 4 (previously least affluent).

- with the most deprived purchasing less of these foods on promotion (previously more of these foods)

The pdf and html have both been updated within the document to reflect these changes.
