The Independent on Sunday

THIS WEEK sees the most significant improvements in the Independent on Sunday and the daily Independent since the papers were launched. Today the Independent on Sunday comes in three new broadsheet sections, each designed to clarify and broaden our coverage, and an enlarged Sunday Review. On Tuesday, the Independent will go into two broadsheet sections; the first section will be devoted to an enlarged service of domestic news, foreign news and comment; the second section will offer more features, arts, business and sports coverage.

Both newspapers will use more colour to enhance their reputation for fine photography. Both will expand their range of interests in the service of the reader. But our style and our values will not change.

These improvements carry a substantial cost, which is why we have to ask you to pay a higher price for your newspapers. Today this newspaper moves from 90p to pounds 1, while on Tuesday the Independent's weekday price will go up from 45p to the Saturday price, 50p. We hope and believe that you will be prepared to pay a realistic price for our continuing commitment to quality and the continuing independence of the Independent and the Independent on Sunday.
