The proposed amendments to be made to the documents as described in the Notice are together referred to as the Proposed Amendments.

Capitalised terms in this announcement shall, except where the context otherwise requires and save where otherwise defined herein or in the Notice issued by the Issuer today, bear the meanings ascribed to them in:

1.         the draft Amended and Restated Master Definitions and Construction Schedule proposed to be entered into in relation to the Proposed Amendments; and

2.         (to the extent not defined in the draft Amended and Restated Master Definitions and Construction Schedule (referred to in (1) above) the issuer master definitions and construction schedule dated 30 April 2010, as amended and restated from time to time (the Issuer Master Definitions and Construction Schedule).

The Notice (including the Explanatory Memorandum) is available upon request from Lloyds Bank Corporate Markets.

The Notice (including the Explanatory Memorandum), the Amended and Restated Master Definitions and Construction Schedule and the Issuer Master Definitions and Construction Schedule are available for inspection by Existing Noteholders at the specified office of the Principal Paying Agent and/or the U.S. Paying Agent (as applicable) and in the Data Room (as described below).

The Trustees are not responsible for the accuracy, completeness, validity or correctness of the statements made in the Notice or the pre-recorded call referred to below or omissions therefrom and make no representation that all relevant information has been disclosed to the Existing Noteholders in or pursuant to the Notice or the pre-recorded call referred to below.

The Notice does not constitute or form part of, and should not be construed as, an offer for sale, exchange or subscription of, or a solicitation of any offer to buy, exchange or subscribe for, any securities of the Issuer or any other entity. The distribution of the Notice may nonetheless be restricted by law in certain jurisdictions. Persons into whose possession the Notice comes are required to inform themselves about, and to observe, any such restrictions.

BACKGROUND

The Issuer proposes to make certain amendments to the Programme, for which Existing Noteholder approval is sought.

It is not expected that the proposed changes once implemented will have an adverse effect on the ratings of the Existing Notes.

The proposed changes are intended to accommodate certain revised counterparty criteria published by Standard & Poor's Financial Services LLC (S&P LLC) on 6 December 2010 (as amended and partially superseded on 13 January 2011) (the New S&P Counterparty Criteria) and revised counterparty criteria published by Fitch Ratings Limited (Fitch) on 14 March 2011 including the derivative addendum (the New Fitch Counterparty Criteria).

The New S&P Counterparty Criteria do not permit the grandfathering of existing notes or programmes and therefore the Programme and the Existing Notes issued under it may be directly impacted if the amendments required in order to implement the New S&P Counterparty Criteria are not so implemented.  Fitch will apply the New Fitch Counterparty Criteria in its surveillance of the Programme and transactions may be subject to rating action if the exposure to counterparties is perceived to be material and counterparties choose not to follow the New Fitch Counterparty Criteria.

The amendments required in relation to the New S&P Counterparty Criteria must be implemented by 18 July 2011, whilst the changes required in relation to the New Fitch Counterparty Criteria are required to be implemented within a similar timescale to avoid such impact.

Failure to implement the changes in relation to the Programme may potentially result in (1) the ratings ascribed to all Existing Class A Notes as well as other Series and Classes of Notes by S&P and Fitch being downgraded or otherwise adversely affected and (2) other adverse consequences for the holders of all Classes of Existing Notes (including, without limitation, in relation to the price at which the Existing Notes may trade).

It is proposed that these New S&P Counterparty Criteria and New Fitch Counterparty Criteria will be accommodated by:

·        making certain modifications to ratings triggers and other ratings criteria contained in the Transaction Documents; and

·        replacing a portion of the credit enhancement currently provided in the form of funds standing to the credit of the General Reserve Fund with Z Loans (the Z Loans), to be loaned on a subordinated basis by Lloyds TSB Bank plc (LTSB) to Funding 1 and which will be used to increase the Funding 1 Share of the Trust Property; and

·        increasing the amount of yield from the Loans in the Portfolio (on a post-Funding 1 Swap basis) and restructuring and decreasing the current size of the Funding 1 Yield Reserve Fund; and

·        making consequential changes to the Transaction Documents in order to reflect the above.

The proposed changes are intended to:

·        enable the current bank account provider to remain as Account Bank to the Issuer, Funding 1 and the Mortgages Trustee; and

·        ensure that the ratings ascribed to all Existing Class A Notes by S&P and Fitch will not be adversely affected as a result of the New S&P Counterparty Criteria and the New Fitch Counterparty Criteria and the other Existing Notes will not be adversely affected as described above.

Please note that the Amendment Documents have been delivered to the Rating Agencies for their review and it is expected that the Rating Agencies will notify the Issuer as to whether the Amendment Documents are acceptable to them. Should any Rating Agency provide notice prior to the execution of the Amendment Documents that such Rating Agency may take adverse rating action in relation to the Notes even if the Proposed Amendments are implemented, then the Amendment Documents will not be executed.  The Issuer shall notify Existing Noteholders if that happens.

Please note that although the Note Trustee may have certain discretions under the Note Trust Deed to determine that any proposed modification(s) will not be materially prejudicial to the interests of the holder of any Series and Class (or sub-Class) of Notes, there is no obligation on the Note Trustee to exercise any such discretion and the Note Trustee may not exercise any such discretion.  Existing Noteholders are therefore urged to exercise their right to vote.

GENERAL INFORMATION

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALTHOUGH THE NOTE TRUSTEE MAY HAVE CERTAIN DISCRETIONS UNDER THE NOTE TRUST DEED TO DETERMINE THAT ANY PROPOSED MODIFICATION(S) WILL NOT BE MATERIALLY PREJUDICIAL TO THE INTERESTS OF THE HOLDER OF ANY SERIES AND CLASS (OR SUB-CLASS) OF NOTES, THERE IS NO OBLIGATION ON THE NOTE TRUSTEE TO EXERCISE ANY SUCH DISCRETION AND THE NOTE TRUSTEE MAY NOT EXERCISE ANY SUCH DISCRETION.  EXISTING NOTEHOLDERS ARE THEREFORE URGED TO EXERCISE THEIR RIGHT TO VOTE.

The attention of Existing Noteholders is drawn, in particular, to the quorum required for the Meeting and for any adjourned meeting which is set out in paragraphs A, B and C of "Voting and Quorum" below.  Having regard to such requirements, Existing Noteholders are strongly urged either to attend the Meeting or to take steps to be represented at the Meeting, as referred to below, as soon as possible.

VOTING AND QUORUM

The following is a summary of the arrangements which have been made for the purpose of Existing Noteholders voting in respect of the Extraordinary Resolutions to be proposed at the Meetings as set out above. These arrangements satisfy the requirements of the provisions contained in the Note Trust Deed relating to the meetings of Noteholders convened for the purpose of passing Extraordinary Resolutions. Full details of these arrangements are set out in Schedule 6 (Provisions for Meetings of Noteholders) to the Note Trust Deed.  The voting procedures for the meetings are different depending on whether Notes are held (i) through Euroclear or Clearstream, Luxembourg or (ii) through DTC (each as defined below and each a Clearing System). The two procedures are described below.

Copies of the Note Trust Deed are available for inspection by the Existing Noteholders during usual business hours at the specified offices of the Principal Paying Agent and the U.S. Paying Agent on any weekday (public holidays excepted) and in the Data Room up to and including the date of the Meeting and at the Meeting.

All the Existing Notes are represented by a global note and are either: (i) held by a common depositary or common safekeeper for Euroclear Bank S.A./N.V. (Euroclear) and Clearstream Banking, société anonyme (Clearstream, Luxembourg) or (ii) held by a custodian for, and registered in the name of Cede & Co. as nominee for, The Depository Trust Company (DTC).

Any Existing Noteholder who wishes to vote in respect of the Extraordinary Resolutions should: (i) in the case of a beneficial owner whose Notes are held in book-entry form by a custodian, request such beneficial owner's custodian to vote on the relevant Extraordinary Resolution(s) in accordance with the procedures set out below, or (ii) in the case of an ExistingNoteholder whose Notes are held in book-entry form directly in the relevant Clearing System, vote on the relevant Extraordinary Resolution(s) in accordance with the procedures set out below.

Existing Noteholders should note that the timings and procedures set out below reflect the requirements for Noteholder meetings set out in Schedule 6 (Provisions for meetings of Noteholders) to the Note Trust Deed, but that the Clearing Systems may have their own additional requirements as to timings and procedures for voting on the Extraordinary Resolutions.  Accordingly, Existing Noteholders wishing to vote in respect of the Extraordinary Resolutions are strongly urged either to contact their custodian (in the case of a beneficial owner whose Notes are held in book-entry form by a custodian) or the relevant Clearing System (in the case of an Existing Noteholder whose Notes are held in book-entry form directly in the relevant Clearing System), as soon as possible.

A.        For Notes held through Euroclear or Clearstream, Luxembourg:

This section A only applies to Notes held through Euroclear or Clearstream, Luxembourg.

Each person who is the owner of a particular nominal amount of the Notes, as shown in the records of Euroclear, Clearstream, Luxembourg or their respective accountholders (an Accountholder) should note that they are not the legal holders of the Notes for the purposes of the meeting and will only be entitled to attend and vote at the meetings in accordance with the procedures set out below. 

1.         An Accountholder wishing to attend and vote at a Meeting in person should contact the relevant Clearing System to make arrangements for the issue of a voting certificate in respect of the Notes in which they have an interest for the purpose of attending and voting at the meeting in person.

2.         If an Accountholder wishes to obtain a voting certificate from the Principal Paying Agent, he must deposit or block his Note at least 48 hours before the time fixed for the relevant Meeting with or to the order of the Principal Paying Agent with a bank or other depository nominated by the Principal Paying Agent for the purpose.

3.         If an Accountholder wishes the votes attributable to his Note to be included in a block voting instruction, (a) he must make arrangements for the votes relating to such Notes to be included in a block voting instruction with the relevant Clearing System in time for the relevant Clearing System to arrange for the Tabulation Agent to be appointed as a proxy (proxy) not later than 48 hours before the time fixed for the meeting; (b) he must deposit or block his Note at least 48 hours before the time fixed for the relevant Meeting with or to the order of the Principal Paying Agent with a bank or other depository nominated by the Principal Paying Agent for the purpose; and (c) he or a duly authorised person on his behalf must direct the Tabulation Agent how those votes are to be cast.

4.         Each block voting instruction shall be deposited at such place as the Note Trustee shall designate or approve at least 24 hours before the time appointed for holding the relevant Meeting and in default the block voting instruction shall not be treated as valid unless the chairman of the relevant Meeting decides otherwise before the relevant Meeting proceeds to business.  A copy of each block voting instruction shall be deposited with the Note Trustee before the commencement of the relevant Meeting but the Note Trustee shall not be obliged to investigate or be concerned with the validity or the authority of the proxy appointed.

5.         An Accountholder whose Note(s) are held at the relevant Clearing System who wishes to obtain a voting certificate or give a voting instruction instructing the Principal Paying Agent in respect of such Note(s) to appoint a proxy to attend and vote at the relevant Meeting on his behalf should not less than 48 hours before the time appointed for the holding of the Meeting and within the relevant time limit specified by the relevant Clearing System, request the relevant Clearing System to block his Note(s) in his own account and hold the same to the order or under the control of the Principal Paying Agent in respect of such Note(s).

An Accountholder whose Note(s) have been so blocked will thus be able to obtain a voting certificate from, or procure that a voting instruction is given in accordance with the procedures of, Euroclear and/or Clearstream, Luxembourg, to the Principal Paying Agent.  Notes so blocked will be released in accordance with the procedures of Euroclear and/or Clearstream, Luxembourg, as the case may be.

B.        For Notes held through DTC:

This section B only applies to Notes held through DTC.

1.         For the purposes of Notes held through DTC, each direct participant in DTC holding a principal amount of the Notes, as reflected in the records of DTC, as at 5:00 pm New York time on 26 May 2011 (the Record Date) will be considered to be a Noteholder upon DTC granting an omnibus proxy authorising DTC direct participants to vote at the relevant Meeting (by delivering a form of proxy).

2.         The Record Date has been fixed as the date for the determination of Noteholders entitled to vote at the Meetings. The delivery of a form of proxy, as defined and described below, will not affect a Noteholder's right to sell or transfer any Notes, and a sale or transfer of any Notes after the Record Date will not have the effect of revoking any form of proxy properly delivered by a Noteholder. Therefore, each properly delivered form of proxy will remain valid notwithstanding any sale or transfer of any Notes to which such form of proxy relates.

3.         A DTC direct participant, duly authorised by an omnibus proxy from DTC, may, by an instrument in writing in the English language (a form of proxy) in the form available from the office of the Tabulation Agent specified below signed by such DTC direct participant, or, in the case of a corporation, executed under its common seal or signed on its behalf by an attorney or a duly authorised officer of the corporation and, in each case, with a medallion stamp guarantee attached and delivered to the specified office of the Tabulation Agent no later than 48 hours before the time fixed for the relevant Meeting, appoint any person (a proxy) to act on his or its behalf in connection with any Meeting and any adjourned such Meeting.

4.         A proxy so appointed shall so long as such appointment remains in force be deemed, for all purposes in connection with the relevant Meeting (or any adjourned such Meeting) to be the holder of the Notes to which such appointment relates and the relevant Noteholder shall be deemed for such purposes not to be the holder.

5.         Only Noteholders (i.e. DTC direct participants) may deliver a form of proxy. A beneficial owner of an interest in Notes held through a DTC direct participant must direct such DTC direct participant to deliver a form of proxy on its behalf.

6.         Any DTC direct participant who intends to deliver one or more properly completed forms of proxy should deliver the same by registered mail, hand delivery, overnight courier or by e-mail or facsimile (with an original delivered subsequently) to the Tabulation Agent at its address, e-mail address or facsimile number set forth below. Such forms of proxy must be received by the Tabulation Agent no later than 48 hours before the time fixed for the relevant Meeting.

7.         The registered ownership of a Note as of the Record Date shall be proved by the Registrar. The ownership of Notes held through DTC by DTC direct participants shall be established by a DTC security position listing provided by DTC as of the Record Date.

C.        General provisions relating to the Meetings:

1.         You may vote on the proposed Extraordinary Resolutions by either requesting a voting certificate in the manner described above which will allow you to attend and vote at the meeting as the bearer of a voting certificate or arranging to deliver voting instructions through the Clearing Systems or form of proxy with respect to your Notes.

2.         The quorum for each Meeting shall be two or more persons present holding or representing Notes or voting certificates or being proxies or representatives and holding or representing in the aggregate not less than fifty per cent. in Principal Amount Outstanding of the Notes of the relevant Class or Series, as applicable.

3.         If a quorum is not present within 15 minutes (or such longer period not exceeding 30 minutes as the chairman may decide) from the time fixed for the relevant Meeting, such Meeting will be adjourned in accordance with the provisions of the Note Trust Deed.  At any adjourned meeting, the quorum shall be two or more persons being or representing Noteholders, whatever the aggregate Principal Amount Outstanding of such Notes of the relevant Class or Series and Class, as applicable, so held or represented. Noteholders should note that voting certificates obtained and proxies appointed in respect of a Meeting shall remain valid for the relevant adjourned Meeting unless validly revoked.

4.         Each question submitted to the Meetings shall be decided in the first instance by a show of hands unless a poll is (before, or on the declaration of, the result of the show of hands) demanded by the chairman of the relevant Meeting, the Issuer, the Note Trustee or any person voting at the relevant Meeting.

5.         On a show of hands every person who is present in person and who produces a Note or voting certificate or is a proxy shall have one vote.  On a poll every person who is so present shall have one vote in respect of each £1000, €1000, $1000 or JPY1000 in Principal Amount Outstanding of the Notes represented by the voting certificate so produced or in respect of which he is a proxy or representative or in respect of which he is the holder.  In the case of a single meeting of the holders of Notes of two or more Series and/or Classes which are not all denominated in the same currency, the Principal Amount Outstanding of any Note denominated in dollars shall be converted into sterling at the relevant Dollar Currency Swap Rate, the Principal Amount Outstanding of any Note denominated in euro shall be converted into sterling at the relevant Euro Currency Swap Rate and the Principal Amount Outstanding of any Note denominated in Japanese yen or any alternative currency shall be converted into sterling at the relevant swap currency exchange rate specified in the applicable Final Terms.  Without prejudice to the obligations of proxies, a person entitled to more than one vote need not use all his votes or cast all his votes in the same way. In a case of equality of votes, the Chairman of the Meeting shall, both on a show of hands and on a poll, have a casting vote in addition to the vote or votes (if any) which he may have as holder of a voting certificate or as a proxy.

6.         To be passed, each Extraordinary Resolution requires a majority in favour consisting of not less than three-fourths of the persons voting at the relevant Meeting or, if a poll is duly demanded, by a majority consisting of not less than three-fourths of the votes cast on such poll.

If passed, each Extraordinary Resolution will be binding on all the Noteholders of the relevant Class and/or Series, as applicable, whether or not present at such Meeting and whether or not voting, and upon all the holders of the coupons relating to the Notes.
