3 MS. STEEL: I have two documents that are pretty short to hand
4 up. They are to go behind Ms. Dibb's statement.
6 MR. JUSTICE BELL: The last document I have at the moment behind
7 her statement is the one with a heart shaped fruit of some
8 kind on it. Should it go behind that?
10 MS. STEEL: Yes, that is fine.
12 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Do you want to call Ms. Dibb now?
14 MS. STEEL: Yes.
16 MS. SUSAN ELIZABETH DIBB, Sworn.
17 Examined by the Defendants
19 MS. STEEL: Can you give your full names to the court, please?
20 A. My name is Susan Elizabeth Dibb.
22 Q. Can you give your address?
23 A. 17 Mortimer Crescent, London NW6 5AP.
25 MR. JUSTICE BELL: You are very faint; try to keep your voice
26 up. If you speak towards Mr. Rampton everyone will get it,

37 that I have watched, and they also make cross-reference to
38 some of the references that I would want to refer to whilst
39 I am giving evidence.
41 Q. Is that OK?
43 MR. JUSTICE BELL: I think you should start by taking Ms. Dibb
44 who is your witness in the way you want to. Do
45 I understand from the question you asked that you would
46 like to follow the form you have done with other witnesses,
47 and whatever else you ask, have her statement which I have
48 and read as part of her evidence?
50 MS. STEEL: I was going to ask that, although I mean it is
51 fairly short, so it is not a problem if you did not want it
52 taken as read.
54 MR. JUSTICE BELL: No, it is entirely a matter for you. I think
55 it would be quite convenient because she makes a number of
56 points there which I have already noted.
58 MS. STEEL: OK.
60 MR. JUSTICE BELL: So why do you not do that? I will do it for
