to the Annual Report and Accounts is provided in full and unedited text as
required to be made public in accordance with Rule 6.3.5 of the Disclosure and

The responsibility statement below is set out in the 2012 Annual Report and
Accounts.

The following statement is repeated here solely for the purpose of complying
with DTR 6.3.5. This statement relates to and is extracted from page 64 of the
2012 Annual Report. Responsibility is for the full 2012 Annual Report and not
the information presented in this announcement or the Annual Results
Announcement issued on 28 February 2013.

The Directors are responsible for preparing the Annual Report, the Directors’
Remuneration Report and the financial statements in accordance with applicable
law and regulations.

Company law requires the Directors to prepare financial statements for each
financial year. Under that law the Directors have prepared the Group financial
statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards
(IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union, and the Parent Company financial
statements in accordance with United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting
Practice (‘United Kingdom Accounting Standards and applicable law’). Under
company law the Directors must not approve the financial statements unless
they are satisfied that they give a true and fair view of the state of affairs
of the Group and the Company and of the profit or loss of the Group for that
period. In preparing these financial statements, the Directors are required
to:

  *select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently;
  *make judgements and accounting estimates that are reasonable and prudent;
  *state whether IFRSs as adopted by the European Union and applicable UK

Accounting Standards have been followed, subject to any material departures
disclosed and explained in the Group and Parent Company financial statements
respectively; and

  *prepare the financial statements on the going concern basis unless it is
    inappropriate to presume that the Company will continue in business.

The Directors are responsible for keeping adequate accounting records that are
sufficient to show and explain the Company’s transactions and disclose with
reasonable accuracy at any time the financial position of the Company and the
Group and enable them to ensure that the financial statements and the
Directors’ Remuneration Report comply with the Companies Act 2006 and, as
regards the Group financial statements, Article 4 of the IAS Regulation. They
are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the Company and the Group
and hence for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of
fraud and other irregularities.
