ber 1959 are annexed. It is not practicable to make the accounting date of the Credit Congolais S.C.R.L. coincide with that of the pa rent company owing to regulations in the Congo. Investments in
subsidiary nominee companies have been written down to nil; these companies do not trade, they made neither profit nor loss during the year and are not dealt with in group accounts in view of the
insignificant amounts involved. 2. (a) Under the Companies Act, 1948 the Bank is not required to show separately the aggregate amount of or movements on its Reserves nor the market value of
its Investments. (b) The accounts of Credit Congolais S.C.R.L. and its Subsidiary, which are made up to 31st December 1959, have been consolidated and adjusted to comply with the Companies Act,
1948 on the same basis as for the Bank. (c) As authorised by the Board of Trade, the accounts of Barclays Overseas Development Corporation Limited do not show the balance of or movements on
the Reserve for Contingencies or the Provision for Taxation. 3. Balances in all currencies have been expressed in sterling at the rates ruling on balance sheet dates. 4. The aggregate amount of the
directors' emoluments was 78,179 including 54,322 for management services and 2,450 directors' fees paid by subsidiaries. For the year to 30th September 1959 the corresponding amounts were
74..-144, 52.328 and 2,326 respectively. The aggregate amount of directors' and past directors' pensions was 29,980, all in respect of services other than as directors (1959, 21,389). 5. Con-

AUDITORS' REPORT TO THE MEMBERS OF BARCLAYS BANK D.C.O. We have examined the foregoing Balance Sheet and Profit and Loss Account of the Bank with the books, accounts,
vouchers and returns and have obtained all the information and explanations which we considered necessary. In our opinion the securities, the existence of which we have confirmed by examination
or otherwise, and all records of the Bank have been properly and safely preserved, the control of the Bank over its branches has been adequate and its instructions to its employees in its branches
have been properly carried out. So far as appears from our examination the Bank has received proper and adequate returns from the branches not visited by us and has kept proper books of account
with which the Accounts are in agreement. We have also examined the Group Accounts comprising the foregoing Accounts of the Bank and the annexed Accounts of Barclays Overseas Development
Corporation Limited and Consolidated Accounts of Credit Congolais S.C.R.L. and its Subsidiary. In our opinion the Accounts of the Bank and the Group Accounts comply with the requirements of
the Companies Act, 1948 in the manner authorised for banking companies and, so far as is practicable on the bases set out in Note 2, give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Bank and
of the Group at 30th September, 1960, and of the profit ascertained in the manner indicated for the year ended on that date.
