Mitchells & Butlers PLC 01 February 2007 Mitchells & Butlers plc Senior Independent Director To further improve the existing high governance standards at Mitchells & Butlers it has been decided to separate the role of Senior Independent Director from that of Chairman of the Remuneration Committee. Sara Weller has provided outstanding support to the Board in both roles over the last four years but, in view of increasing demands associated with her role within the newly formed Home Retail Group plc, she has elected to stand down from her role as Senior Independent Director. However, I am pleased to confirm that she has agreed to continue as Chairman of the Remuneration Committee. With immediate effect, Drummond Hall is appointed Senior Independent Director, having recently stepped down from his full time position as Chief Executive of Dairy Crest plc.
