3 MS. STEEL: There are some pages here from the Diet, Nutrition
4 and Cancer, the green book that you asked for yesterday.
5 (Handed) We just wanted to bring up about the documents
6 that we put in the file that was going to be used in
7 cross-examination of Dr. Barnard. Apart from his book
8 none were specifically put to him. As we pointed out, the
9 transcript of the video was inaccurate and, as far as we
10 are aware, there are a large number of misleading and
11 inaccurate documents in there. I am not saying that is
12 the fault of the Plaintiffs specifically.
14 MR. JUSTICE BELL: I will not read any of it apart from when
15 I come back to look at the transcript of Dr. Barnard's
16 evidence, the parts which were put in cross-examination,
17 unless at any stage Mr. Rampton specifically asks me to
18 and persuades me that it is legitimate to do so, and if he
19 does seek to do that, I will hear you.
21 MS. STEEL: We would like to ask that, apart from the book
22 which was referred to, the other documents were removed
23 from the trial bundles.
25 MR. JUSTICE BELL: That is probably the best thing,
26 Mr. Rampton. If we need to come back to them in any
27 context whatsoever, they can be put back in.
29 MR. RAMPTON: Yes, I did what one normally does in these cases
30 (and should always do) which is in relation to credit ask
31 questions based upon the documents. In the light of the
32 answers, I did not put the documents.
34 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Yes.
36 MR. MORRIS: We call Peter Cox.
38 MR. RAMPTON: My Lord, before Mr. Cox gives evidence, I would
39 observe that, as so often, I have only got a selection of
40 Mr. Cox's references. I am afraid (and I believe) that
41 will be the same for your Lordship as well. In relation
42 to his first statement, I have numbers 8, 10, 12, 13, 15
43 and 16. In relation to his second statement, I have 2, 3,
44 4 and 5. That is all.
46 MS. STEEL: Some of them are to be found in the trial bundles.
47 I do not think the other ones are going to be referred to.
49 MR. RAMPTON: That is fine.
51 MR. JUSTICE BELL: When we come to -- you call Mr. Cox. We
52 will see whether there is any problem about documents.
54 MR. MORRIS: We call Mr. Cox, please.
56 MR. PETER DAVID COX, Sworn
57 Examined by the Defendants
59 MR. MORRIS: Will you give the court your full name, please?
60 A. My full name is Peter David Cox.
