Confirmation from UK Panel

Brambles Industries PLC
22 December 2005


              CONFIRMATION FROM UK PANEL ON TAKEOVERS AND MERGERS


Brambles confirms today that, following consultation with The UK Panel on
Takeovers and Mergers (the 'Panel'), the UK City Code on Takeovers and Mergers
('Code') will not apply to the proposed unification of its dual-listed companies
structure by way of the creation of a new single holding company, as announced
on 29 November 2005. As a result, Brambles will no longer be considered to be in
an Offer Period under the Code and the associated requirements, including the
requirement for 'Rule 8.3' disclosures outlined in the announcement of 29
November 2005, will no longer be applicable.
