Independent Review Report of KPMG Audit Plc to BHP Billiton Plc and of KPMG to the Members of BHP Billiton Limited


For the purposes of these reports, the terms "we" and "our" denote KPMG Audit Plc in relation to its responsibilities under its terms of engagement to report to BHP Billiton Plc and KPMG in relation to Australian professional and regulatory responsibilities and reporting obligations to the members of BHP Billiton Limited.

The BHP Billiton Group ("the Group") consists of BHP Billiton Plc and BHP Billiton Limited and the entities they controlled at the end of the half-year or from time to time during the half-year ended 31 December 2007.

We have reviewed the condensed half-year financial statements of the Group for the half-year ended 31 December 2007 ("half-year financial statements"), set out on pages 18 to 30, which comprise the consolidated income statement, consolidated statement of recognised income and expense, consolidated balance sheet, consolidated cash flow statement, summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes 1 to 12. We have read the other information contained in the half-year financial report and considered whether it contains any apparent misstatements or material inconsistencies with the information in the half-year financial statements. KPMG has also reviewed the directors' declaration set out on page 32 in relation to Australian regulatory requirements contained in section (a) and (c) of the directors' declaration.
