Day 037 - 14 Oct 94 - Page 02

     1                                      Friday, 14th October, 1994
     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.
