     the Offer or otherwise, BPI shares carrying in aggregate more
     than 50 per cent. of the voting rights then exercisable at
     general meetings of BPI (including for this purpose, to the

     or issued before the Offer becomes or is declared
     unconditional as to acceptances), and for the purpose of this
     condition the expression 'BPI shares to which the Offer
     relates' shall be construed in accordance with Sections 428 to
     430F of the Act, and BPI shares which have been
     unconditionally allotted but not issued shall be deemed to
     carry the voting rights which they will carry on issue;

2.   the passing at an Extraordinary General Meeting of
     Macfarlane (or any adjournment thereof) of such
     resolutions(s) as may be necessary or, in the opinion of
     the Macfarlane board, desirable to approve, effect and
     implement the Offer (including the financing of the
     Offer), the proposed acquisition of any BPI shares
     pursuant to the Offer or otherwise and the making of any
     offer, proposal or other arrangements to holders of
     options under the BPI Share Schemes;

3.   Macfarlane not having discovered or otherwise become
     aware prior to the date upon which the Offer would
     otherwise have become unconditional in all respects that
     the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry intends to
     refer the proposed acquisition of BPI by Macfarlane or
     any matters arising therefrom or related thereto to the
     Competition Commission in the United Kingdom;

4.   to the extent that the Irish Mergers, Take-Overs and

     Act'), is applicable, the Minister for Enterprise, Trade
     and Employment of Ireland having stated in writing,
     pursuant to Section 7(a) of the Mergers Act, that she
     does not intend to make an order under Section 9 of that
     Act in relation to the Offer; or in the event of the said
     Minister making an order under Section 9 prohibiting the
     Offer except on conditions specified in the said order,

     accept such conditions; or in the event of no order under
     that section being made and the said relevant period
     within the meaning of Section 6 of that Act having
     elapsed;

     or  may  be  bound, entitled or subject, which  could  or
     might  in  consequence  of  the  Offer  or  the  proposed
     acquisition  of the issued share capital of  BPI  or  any
     part  thereof  by Macfarlane or because of  a  change  in
     control of management of BPI or otherwise could or  might
     reasonably be expected to result in:

5.1  any monies borrowed by or any other indebtedness, actual
     or contingent, of any member of the Wider BPI Group being
     or becoming repayable, or being or becoming capable of
     being declared repayable, immediately or earlier than the
     repayment date stated in such arrangement, agreement or
     other instrument or the ability of any such member to
     borrow monies or incur any indebtedness being withdrawn

     under any name under which it presently does so; and

      no event having occurred which, under any provision of
     any agreement, arrangement, lease, licence, permit or
     other instrument to which any member of the Wider BPI
     Group is a party or by or to which any such member or any
     of its assets is bound, entitled or subject, is
     reasonably likely to result in any of the events or
     circumstances as are referred to in paragraphs 5.1 to
     5.7;

6.   no government or governmental, quasi-governmental,
     supranational, statutory, regulatory or investigative

     or the implementation thereof; or

     ability of Macfarlane, or render Macfarlane unable, to
     acquire some or all of the BPI shares; or

6.3  require or prevent or delay the divestiture by the Wider

     any other person or body whatsoever in any jurisdiction
     with regard to the disposal, discharge, spillage, leak or
     emission of any waste or hazardous substance or any
     substance likely to impair the environment or harm human
     health, or otherwise relating to environmental matters,
     or that there has otherwise been any such disposal,
     discharge, spillage, leak or emission (whether or not the
     same constituted a non-compliance by any person with any
     such laws, statutes, ordinances, regulations or other
     requirements and wherever the same may have taken place)

     any material liability (whether actual or contingent) on
     the part of any member of the Wider BPI Group; or

10.4 there is, or is likely to be, any material liability

     or order of any government, governmental, quasi-
     governmental, supranational, statutory, regulatory or

     institution or professional body or any other person or
     body whatsoever in any jurisdiction; or

10.5 any member of the Wider BPI Group will, or is likely to,
     be affected materially and adversely by any failure of
     any computer hardware, software or embedded chip
     technology of any member of the Wider BPI Group to be
     Year 2000 Compliant or by the cost and/or disruption to
     normal activities caused by work carried out or to be
     carried out to ensure such computer hardware, software or
     embedded chip technology is Year 2000 compliant.
          
     Macfarlane reserves the right to waive, in whole or in
     part, all or any of conditions 3 to 10 inclusive.  The
     Offer will lapse unless all the conditions set out in
     this Appendix have been fulfilled or (if capable of
     waiver) waived or, where appropriate, have been
     determined by Macfarlane in its reasonable opinion to be
     and continue to be satisfied on or before midnight on the
     21st day after the later of the first closing date of the
     Offer and the date on which condition l is fulfilled, or
     in each case such later date as Macfarlane may, with the
     consent of the Panel, decide.  Macfarlane shall be under
     no obligation to waive or treat as fulfilled any of
     conditions 2 to 10 inclusive by a date earlier than the
     latest date specified above for the satisfaction thereof
     notwithstanding that the other conditions of the Offer
     may at such earlier date have been waived or fulfilled
     and that there are at such earlier date no circumstances
     indicating that any such conditions may not be capable of
     fulfilment.

     If Macfarlane is required by the Panel to make an offer
     for any BPI shares under the provisions of Rule 9 of the
     City Code, Macfarlane may make such alterations to the
     conditions of the Offer, including condition l above, as
     are necessary to comply with the provisions of that Rule.

     The  Offer will lapse (unless otherwise agreed  with  the
     Panel) if the proposed acquisition of BPI is referred  to
     the  Competition Commission before the later of 3.00 p.m.
     on  the  first closing date of the Offer and the date  on
     which the Offer becomes unconditional as to acceptances.

     The Offer will not be made, directly or indirectly, in or
     into,  or  by  use  of  mails or by any  other  means  or
     instrumentality of interstate or foreign commerce, or  of
     any  facility  of a national securities exchange  of  the
     United States, Canada, Australia, the Republic or Ireland
     or  Japan.  Accordingly, this announcement is not  being,
     and  must  not  be, and copies of the Offer Document  and
     Form  of Acceptance will not be, and must not be,  mailed
     or  otherwise distributed or sent in, into  or  from  the
     United States, Canada, Australia, the Republic or Ireland
     or Japan.

     If  the Offer lapses for any reason, the Offer will cease
     to  be  capable  of further acceptance and accepting  BPI
     shareholders  and Macfarlane will cease to  be  bound  by
     Forms  of  Acceptance submitted before the time when  the
     Offer lapses.
     
     For the purposes of these conditions:

          (a)  the 'Wider BPI Group' means BPI and its
          subsidiary undertakings, associated undertakings and
          any other undertaking in which BPI and such
          undertakings (aggregating their interests) have a
          significant interest; and for the purposes of this
          definition, 'subsidiary undertaking', 'associated
          undertaking' and 'undertaking' have the meanings
          given to those terms by the Act (but for this
          purpose ignoring paragraph 20(1)(b) of Schedule 4A
          to the Act) and 'significant interest' means a
          direct or indirect interest in 10 per cent.  or more
          of the equity capital of an undertaking;

          (b)  'Year 2000 Compliant' means complying with the
          year 2000-conformity requirements promulgated by the
          British Standards Institute whose definition is as
          follows:

     'Year 2000 conformity shall mean that neither performance
     nor functionality is affected by dates prior to, during
     and after the year 2000.

     In particular:

          Rule 1    no value for current date will cause any
                    interruption in operation;

          Rule 2    date-based functionality must behave
                    consistently for dates before, during and
                    after the year 2000;

          Rule 3    in all interfaces and data storage, the 
                    century in any date is specified either
