1        Basis of preparation

          The figures for the year ended 31 January 2000 are an abridged
version of the audited accounts for the year which have been filed with the
Registrar of Companies and on which the auditors of the Company issued a
report which, whilst unqualified, contained an explanatory note drawing
shareholders' attention to the fact that the accounts have been prepared on a
going concern basis which is dependent on the Company's bank facilities
remaining in place.  The remaining figures have not been audited or reviewed
by the Group's auditors.

2        Earnings per share

          The calculation of earning per share is based on the net loss for
the period of £87,000 (1999 - £98,000) and an average of 32,220,805 (1999 -
32,220,805) ordinary shares in issue during the period.
