Notes from last year:

1.     Any proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman have been included in the "for" total.

2.     The Group's issued capital (excluding treasury shares) at the date of the meeting was 133,232,518 ordinary shares of 50p each.  Each ordinary share carried the right to one vote and, therefore, at the date of the meeting there were 133,232,518 voting rights in the Group.

3.     A "vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes "for" and "against" a resolution.
