CHAIRMAN'S AGM STATEMENT



                                                                   25 May 2001

At the Annual General Meeting of Johnston Group PLC, held today, Roger
Holland, Chairman made the following comments:

'As highlighted in my statement in the Annual Report, trading conditions
remain very competitive in our UK and overseas markets, with continued
pressure on margins.

The Group's trading performance for the first quarter was below expectations,
but the outlook for the second quarter is much improved.  In total, however,
the result for the first half will be substantially less than the record
performance achieved last year.

Order books are currently satisfactory, but it is of course too early to make
a prediction for the year as a whole.'
