Please note that, in order to facilitate the operation of the Bradford & Bingley
2000 Sharesave Scheme ("the Scheme"), Bradford & Bingley QUEST Limited as
trustee of the Bradford & Bingley Qualifying Employee Share Ownership Trust
established by Deed on 8 December 2000 (the "Trust"), purchased 423,636 Ordinary

Options, subject to the Scheme rules, were granted in 2001, 2002 and 2003 and
Bradford & Bingley QUEST has agreed to satisfy those options.

Christopher Rodrigues, Steven Crawshaw and Rosemary Thorne as directors of
Bradford & Bingley plc, are potential beneficiaries under the Trust (together
