We write to advise you that we, Schroder Investment Management Limited, have an

       wholly-owned subsidiary nominee company, Schroder Nominees Limited       
       (Schroder Nominees),

(ii)    23,469,910 shares held in (a) unit trust(s) operated and managed by     
        another wholly-owned subsidiary, Schroder Unit Trusts Limited (SUTL),   
        and registered or to be registered in the name of Chase Nominee and,

(iii)   15,790,564 shares neither registered nor to be registered in the name of
        Schroder Nominees. The registration details are shown on the schedule

An affiliated company, Schroder Investment Management North America Inc (SIMNA 
Inc), is managing a portfolio on a similar basis holding a further 3,000,000 
shares. This holding is registered or to be registered in the name of Chase 
Nominees Limited.

We believe that we, our subsidiary and affiliated company are therefore

10.088% of the total number of shares in issue, namely 431,463,000.


This notification is made to you:-

    treated as having respectively under the Companies Act 1985 (the Act), and

    an interest in all of the above shares under the Act by virtue of its       
    ownership of SIMNA Inc and ourselves.
