An analysis based on a result of Thouless for localisation in one dimension leads to the conclusion that slowly decaying fluctuations of the recursion coefficients reflect the existence of regions of exponentially localised states. The index which characterises this decay is predicted and the resulting value is consistent with recent numerical estimates in two dimensions.
