1 many milligrams there are there?
2 A. Yes, in the Hazelton 1986 report the milligrams for
3 sodium are also 743.
5 MR. JUSTICE BELL: I have not found that in the analysis.
7 MS. STEEL: It is under "Sandwiches", the second one along.
9 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Yes, 743.
11 MS. STEEL: Then if you could look at McNuggetts in the
12 advertisement, it is 512 milligrams; is that right?
13 A. In the 1987 ad, yes.
15 Q. If you look under "Chicken McNuggetts", which is the first
16 one in the middle section of this page in the Hazelton
17 report, that is 512 as well?
18 A. Yes.
20 Q. Finally, looking at the vanilla milk shake which in the
21 advertisement states 201 milligrams of sodium, we also
22 find that in the last chart on the nutritional analysis
23 under "other items"; the fourth one along is vanilla milk
24 shake, that is also 201 milligrams; is that right?
25 A. In the Hazelton study, yes, also 201.
27 Q. So, looking at that, it would appear what you wrote in
28 your letter is correct?
29 A. Yes.
31 Q. Or what the Attorney General wrote. Then going on to the
32 argument yesterday about sodium hexametaphosphate -- you
33 should not need the large bundle any more.
35 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Do we know just what the dates are?
37 MS. STEEL: It says 1986.
39 MR. JUSTICE BELL: I appreciate that. But if an analysis was
40 done in 1986 those might actually be the figures which
41 appear in ads starting in the middle of January 1987. Do
42 you see what I mean?
44 MS. STEEL: That is actually the point.
46 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Yes.
48 MS. STEEL: He said that he had written the letter based --
49 I mean, he said this yesterday -- on looking at their
50 documents, at their nutritional information.
52 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Do we know, for instance, what the position
53 was in 1985? Do you yourself have a source of information
54 as to whether the ads were actually working on the 1986
55 survey or compared with 1985? You see, I realise the
56 point which is being made, but if, for instance, this
57 analysis is the latest analysis that McDonald's had when
58 the ads were prepared and, in fact, on the analysis a year
59 previous to this the sodium had been higher, they might
60 pray that in aid. I just do not know. You see the point
