The SIP is made available to all UK employees and operates as follows:

* Each month the Trustee uses participants` contributions (which may not exceed
£125 per participant per month) to purchase shares in the market. These shares
are called `Partnership shares`. 
* At the same time the Company allots to participants via the Trustee one
`Matching share` for every two Partnership shares purchased that month (up to a
maximum of 22 Matching shares per month). 
* Participants may change their monthly savings rate whenever they wish.
However, Directors and others bound by the Company`s Securities Dealing Code
(the "Code") may not make such a change during a close period or when otherwise
prohibited from dealing by the Code.
