The Board notes that, though 74.97% of shareholders voted in favour of resolution 2 in relation to the Directors' Remuneration Report, 25.03% of shareholders voted against the resolution.

The Remuneration Committee carried out a shareholder consultation exercise in early 2019 and was pleased that many shareholders took the time to share their views. Whilst many expressed support for the Committee's decisions during those conversations, we note that a number of shareholders still felt unable to support us at the AGM.

We will be seeking approval for a new Directors' Remuneration Policy at our AGM in 2020, in line with the normal cycle for renewal. The Board is committed to maintaining ongoing dialogue with our shareholders and, as part of the development of the new Policy, we will reflect on feedback received from shareholders as we develop our approach going forward.

As at the date of the AGM, the number of ordinary shares in issue, and therefore the total number of voting rights was 418,489,214.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, copies of all the resolutions passed, other than resolutions concerning ordinary business, will be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and be available for inspection at: http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM.

* A 'vote withheld' is not a vote in law and is not counted towards the proportion of votes 'for' and 'against' a resolution.
