* Special resolution


Because of the nature of the dual listed companies structure, the poll results
for each company on joint electorate actions are identical. Resolutions 6 - 9
are joint electorate matters and the votes above include those cast by
shareholders of both Brambles Industries plc and Brambles Industries Limited.

Resolutions 1 - 5 are class rights actions, which were carried by the required
majority at each of the Brambles Industries plc and the Brambles Industries
Limited meetings.
