              THE HENDERSON SMALLER COMPANIES INVESTMENT TRUST PLC

            Transactions in a Close Period - Listing Rule 15.5.1 (4)

The Henderson Smaller Companies Investment Trust plc ('the Company') hereby
confirms that:
     
a)   there is no unpublished information which constitutes price sensitive
     information in respect of the Company's securities;

b)   the Company's net asset value per share is calculated and announced
     through a Regulated Information Service ('RIS') on a daily basis;

c)   the Company has no reason to believe that there will be any material
     difference between the net asset value announced on 30 November 2007 (as at
     close of business on 29 November 2007) and the financial information to be
     published in the preliminary announcement of its annual results for the 
     half year ended 30 November 2007;

d)   the Company has some investments that are no longer quoted, the directors' 
     valuations of which have been included in the net asset values published 
     on a daily basis.

The Company is therefore exempt during the close period from the provisions of
the Model Code in respect of dealings by persons discharging managerial
responsibilities and purchases of its own securities.  If, in the period leading
up to the announcement of the results, the directors or the Company come into
possession of any inside information, this will be notified to a RIS before any
such transactions are undertaken.

The close period to which this notification relates is in respect of the
financial half year ended 30 November 2007.

                                    - ENDS -
