Alan  Parker, Chairman,  said "I  am delighted  that Richard  is able to succeed Bernard  as  the  senior  independent  director.   Richard has been one of our directors for more than four years and brings both experience and continuity to this important role.  I would also like to thank Bernard for his contribution and support during his time as SID."
