Chairman's Statement

for the half year ended 31 October 2003



The last six months has witnessed an encouraging upward movement in global
equity markets and the FTSE All Share Index has risen by 12.4%. As a consequence
of these events the value of many of the split capital shareholdings held by
your Company have increased. However the debt owed by the Company is still
substantially higher than the Company's assets and the outlook for the Company's
equity shareholders remains bleak.

At 30 April 2003 the bank debt had been reduced to £17.5 million, an amount that
still exceeded the value of the gross assets of £9.1 million by £8.4 million.
During the period the portfolio has been reduced by taking advantage of the
strengthening prices and improving liquidity of some split capital trusts. The
funds raised by these sales have been used to pay down debt that by 31 October
2003 had been reduced to £11.9 million. In the same period the value of gross
assets had declined to £7.4 million and the deficit to £4.5 million.

The Board continues to be in regular contact with the lending banks, which have
remained supportive throughout. The banks have chosen not to demand repayment
but rather to allow the Company to continue in operation.

As reported in my last report to shareholders your Company's shares were
suspended on 8 October 2002 and currently remain suspended. Given the current
situation the Board has continued its conservative policy of not preparing the
accounts on a going concern basis and the portfolio has accordingly been valued
on a bid basis as at 31 October 2003.



Debt and the Banks

The Company has continued to repay the bank debt through the sale of the
investments in the remaining split capital investment trusts. The repayment
schedule and the cost of the swap and the breakage costs incurred whenever debt
is repaid was as follows :

Date                                       Debt Repayment              Repayment Costs           Balance Outstanding
1 May 2003                                Opening balance                                                £17,495,275
29 May 2003                                      £900,000                      £97,706                   £16,595,275
18 July 2003                                   £1,683,000                     £159,220                   £14,912,275
2 October 2003                                 £1,352,081                     £105,907                   £13,560,194
28 October 2003                                £1,707,674                      £94,454                   £11,852,520
26 November 2003                               £2,502,158                     £147,842                    £9,350,362

The repayment costs reflect the prevailing forward interest rates at the time
the swap was broken.

The costs of running the Company continue to be kept to an absolute minimum with
the Directors and Legg Mason Investments (Europe) Limited (the Fund Manager),
forgoing all remuneration and administration expenses have been reduced to an
absolute minimum level.



Investment Portfolio

The main activity during the period has been the continued sale of assets in
order to further reduce the Company's bank debt, in accordance with the strategy
outlined in my report of 30 April 2003. The policy of disposal has to-date
focused on achieving fair value or better for the shares and avoiding forced
sales at valuations less than full value.

As at 31 October 2003, the percentage of the investment portfolio per ABN Amro
(ABNA) rating is shown below.

Composition of Portfolio Rating By ABNA Rating
ABNA Rating                    % held
A                                83.2
B                                 0.0
C                                10.2
Cash                              6.6
Total                            100%

The only investment activity during the period has been the sale of thirteen
holdings. The proceeds have been used to reduce the bank debt as noted above.



Dividends

No dividend has been declared to any share class as the asset values continue to
be less than the amount prescribed by Section 265 of the Companies Act 1985,
which requires assets to be 1.5 times liabilities. Regrettably, the Board do not
envisage a resumption of the dividend is likely.

Outlook

Although the outlook for further equity gains appears to be favourable, it is
tempered by the possibility of an upturn in the interest rate cycle. The level
to which the remaining split capital investment trust portfolio have fallen
combined with the on-going debt repayment obligations mean that there is no
realistic prospect of the market recovery benefiting the Company's equity
shareholders.

The Company is in a difficult financial position and it is likely that, subject
to the outcome of negotiations with the lending banks that the Company will be
wound-up with no return to shareholders.

Notes to the accounts
for the half year ended 31 October 2003


 1. Accounts for the year ended 30 April 2003

    The figures and financial information for year ended 30 April 2003 are
    extracted from the latest published accounts of the Company and do not
    constitute statutory accounts for that year. Those accounts have been
    delivered to the Registrar of Companies and included the report of the
    auditors which was unqualified and did not include a statement under either
    Section 237(2) or Section 237(3) of the Companies Act 1985.
 2. Zero Dividend Preference Shares

    At 31 October 2002 the consolidated net assets of the Group were
    insufficient to pay any of the final capital entitlement of the ZDP shares
    of 212.75p. Even with the portfolio valued at mid-market prices, the assets
    are £5.5 million below the level at which any asset value becomes
    attributable to the ZDP shares. These shares were issued by the Company's
    subsidiary, LeggMason Investors Income & Growth Securities plc. In
    accordance with the reporting requirements of Financial Reporting Standard
    4, the obligations under the loan and subscription agreements have been
    accounted for in full rather than on the basis of the assets available.
    However, due to the significant doubt that the parent Company will have any
    assets available to meet these obligations, the net asset value per ZDP
    share is shown at zero.
 3. Going concern


        The banks have indicated that they have no current intention of
        demanding immediate repayment of the outstanding loan. However, if the
        Bank were to require repayment of the debt, the Group would be unable to
        meet this obligation and therefore the directors have decided that the
        going concern basis of accounting is not appropriate. As a result the
        accounts have been prepared on a break-up basis and include accruals for
        breakage costs which would be payable in the event of the early
        termination of the loan, and accruals for other costs which would be
        payable in the event of the liquidation of the Group. In addition the
        investments are valued at the amount that the directors would expect
        them to realise in the event of liquidation.

Notes to the accounts
for the half year ended 31 October 2003

1.     Going concern

The banks have indicated that they have no current intention of demanding
immediate repayment of the outstanding loan to the parent company. However, if
the Bank were to require repayment of the debt, the Group would be unable to
meet this obligation and therefore the directors have decided that the going
concern basis of accounting is not appropriate. As a result the accounts have
been prepared on a break-up basis. The parent company's accounts include
accruals for breakage costs which would be payable in the event of the early
termination of the loan, and accruals for other costs which would be payable in
the event of the liquidation of the Group. The Company's only investment is
valued at the amount that the directors would expect it to realise in the event
of liquidation.

 2. Debtors
