Notes to the preliminary results

1  This preliminary announcement is not the company's statutory accounts but
   extracts therefrom.  Statutory accounts dealing with the financial period
   ended 31 January 2000 have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies.

2  The financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, the
   validity of which depends on the bank facilities remaining in place.   If
   the  facilities  were to be withdrawn and not replaced adjustments  would
   have to be made to reduce balance sheet asset values to their recoverable
   amounts, to provide for any further liabilities that might arise  and  to
   reclassify  fixed assets and long term liabilities as current assets  and
   current liabilities.

3  In  the  audit report to the 31 January 2000 annual financial  statements
   the  auditors have emphasised the fact that the Company meets its day  to
   day  working  capital requirements through certain overdraft  facilities,
   which are repayable on demand.  The Company expects to operate within the
   facilities  currently  agreed.   In these  circumstances,  the  Directors
   believe  that it continues to be appropriate for the financial statements
   to  be prepared on a going concern basis.  However, inherently, there can
   be no certainty in relation to these views.

4  The  audit  report  did not contain statements under  s237  (2)  or  (3)
   Companies Act 1985.
