     3   MR. MORRIS:  Just before we call the witness, we are a little
     4        bit concerned that the Plaintiffs have served a huge file
     5        of documents relevant to Sue Dibb's evidence which were not
     6        in her references -- well, not her original three
     7        references which she disclosed, but not in any of her
     8        references with the book that she disclosed, new references
     9        that neither we or she has had time to even see.
    11   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  But are they among the 170 in her book?
    13   MR. RAMPTON:  Some of them are and some of them are not.
    15   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Well, how many are there which are not in the
    16        footnotes in her book?
    18   MR. MORRIS:  This bundle of documents are not in the footnotes
    19        and need to be looked through.
    21   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  How many are there?
    23   MR. MORRIS:  There are 14.  Well, there are 14 substantial
    24        references.  So, in the light of that -- and we have not
    25        had time to look at them at all yet -- we would prefer if
    26        Sue Dibb came on Friday, rather than tomorrow.  Well, that
    27        does not give us much time either.
    29   MS. STEEL:  I was not even in when these were delivered last
    30        night, so I have not even seen them -- full stop -- to
    31        begin looking at them.  My set was delivered to Mr. Morris,
    32        again, so I have not even seen them at all.
    34   MR. MORRIS:  Yes.  I mean, obviously, we want to move on as fast
    35        as we can, but we thought that tomorrow would be
    36        impossible, really.
    38   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Is she going to come today at all?
    40   MR. MORRIS:  No, but we are going to try and deliver them to her
    41        this evening, or something.
    43   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Do you wish to say anything, Mr. Rampton?
    45   MR. RAMPTON:  No, my Lord.  I merely complied with your
    46        Lordship's direction that if there was material to which I
    47        might make reference in cross-examination which the
    48        Defendants had not notified us that Miss Dibb was going to
    49        refer to, then I would make it available at the earliest
    50        opportunity.  That is what I have done. 
    52   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  When I said that, I thought we were only 
    53        within the 170 references----
    55   MR. RAMPTON:  I think I said that.  It can be checked on the
    56        transcript.
    58   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  I did not take that point on board, if you
    59        did say that.
