Statement from John Allan, non-executive Chair, Tesco PLC

"I would like to clarify the remarks I made earlier this week at a Retail Week Live panel event where I was speaking to aspiring Non-Executive Directors, many of them women. The point I was seeking to make was that successful Boards must be active in bringing together a diverse and representative set of people. There is still much more to be done but now is a good time for women to put themselves forward for NED roles. In all the organisations I have been involved in I have been a committed advocate of greater diversity and very much regret if my remarks have given the opposite impression."
