The Board is committed to maintaining high standards of corporate governance.

The Board first reported its compliance with the Combined Code in 2004.

Since then, other than as explained in the Annual Report, it has continued to comply in full with the Combined Code (now the UK Corporate Governance Code) and continued to develop its approach to corporate governance and the effective management of risk in the context of an evolving business. 

The UK Corporate Governance Code Compliance Statement was approved and adopted by the Board on 30 March 2011 and varied by the Board on 7 September 2011, 11 April 2013, 27 March 2014 (to reflect further changes in the Code), 26 March 2015 and most recently on 15 April 2016.
