We wish to advise that, following our 21 November 2002 trading update, the
Australian Securities & Investments Commission ('ASIC') is making preliminary
enquiries in relation to comments concerning Brambles' financial performance
during the period 28 August - 28 November 2002.

While no allegations have been made and no new matters have been raised, we
consider it appropriate to keep the market informed.

Brambles will be providing ASIC with every assistance in its enquiries.
