Acquisition of an interest in shares

Caledonia Investments plc ('Caledonia') announces that on 19 March 2004 it
received notification pursuant to section 198 of the Companies Act 1985 (the '
Act') from The Cayzer Trust Company Limited ('CTC') that CTC has acquired an
interest in an additional 1,414,345 ordinary shares of 5p each in Caledonia,
representing 1.95 per cent of Caledonia's total issued ordinary share capital.

The interest, which is of the type mentioned in section 208(4)(b) of the Act,
arises from voting and pre-emption arrangements entered into on 15 March 2004 by
CTC with a minority group of CTC's shareholders (the 'Minority Group'). These
arrangements form part of the settlement terms agreed between CTC and the
Minority Group referred to in the announcement released by Caledonia on 15 March
2004 regarding its proposals for a return of funds to ordinary shareholders.

The registered holders of the above-mentioned shares, so far as is known to CTC,
are as follows:
