A Liberty International Executive Director, Mr R M Cable, has increased his
holding of Liberty International PLC ordinary shares by 14,952 shares to 40,215
shares, representing 0.012% of the issued share capital.

This increase in holding follows an exercise of options on 17 March 2006 over
50,000 ordinary shares in Liberty International at an option price of 565p per
share. Immediately following the exercise, Mr Cable sold 35,048 ordinary shares
at a price of 1147p per share, in order to meet acquisition costs and income
tax liabilities.

The shares required for option exercises by the Director mentioned above and
another employee, were provided by transfers of shares from LI Share Plan

ownership plan ("ESOP"). As Executive Directors of Liberty International PLC

change in their interests.
