Hi.Can you tell me if the shares you plan to give away are in a publicly quoted company with which you have no connection or a private company that you and your children are involved with please. Do you know what the shares were worth when you inherited them?
The shares are in Unilever, Rio Tinto and BAT. I inherited them from my mother who died in 1978. I don't know what they were worth then - I expect there is a table somewhere.
