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
58 MR. JUSTICE BELL: I did not take that point on board, if you
59 did say that.
