(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the ABRO Trading Fund Order 2002 (S.I. 2002/719). Capital assets additional to those estimated in that order were allocated to the Fund when it commenced. A revaluation of stock and work in progress was also required. These changes altered the revaluation reserve and the computation of the public dividend capital. Consequent amendments have therefore been made by this Order.
