                           each issued by the Issuer
                 (the Noteholders and the Notes, respectively)

 constituted by a Trust Deed dated 12 April 2007 (as supplemented and amended)
between the Issuer and Deutsche Trustee Company Limited (the Trustee) as trustee
                              for the Noteholders

Notice is hereby given to the Noteholders that, pursuant to the HBOS Group
Reorganisation Act 2006 (the HBOS Group Reorganisation Act) and with effect from
17 September 2007 (the Reorganisation Date), The Governor and Company of the
Bank of Scotland (the Bank) was registered as a public company under the
Companies Act 1985 and changed its name to Bank of Scotland plc and the business
and all property and liabilities of Halifax plc (Halifax) were transferred to
the Bank.

In this regard, there is no need for the parties to the Transaction Documents to
enter into any further documentation in order to construe the Transaction
Documents as referring to the Bank in place of Halifax since the HBOS Group
Reorganisation Act provides that every existing contract relating to Halifax
shall be construed and have effect on and from the Reorganisation Date as if the
Bank had been a party thereto instead of Halifax and as if any reference
(however worded and whether express or implied) to Halifax was substituted with
a reference to the Bank.

However, certain Transaction Documents to which Halifax and/or the Bank is a
party may be amended and restated or supplemented and amended in connection with
the next issue of notes by the Issuer so that the representations and warranties
and covenants contained therein reflect that they will be given by a company
incorporated in Scotland and registered as a public company under the Companies
Act 1985.

Copies of any such further Transaction Documents will be available for
inspection by Noteholders at the specified offices of the Paying Agents set out
below:
