     1   MR. MORRIS:  I am happy for either yourself or myself to take
     2        Mr. Mallinson through the figures although, having heard
     3        them, I would like to consider them over lunch if we are
     4        still going and then maybe any further questions.
     6   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  What I suggest is, it matters not to me
     7        whether it is you or me, takes Mr. Mallinson through it.
     8        We then leave that there and you go on with other parts of
     9        your cross-examination and come back this afternoon to
    10        these calculations.
    12   MR. MORRIS:  If we need to, yes.
    14   MS. STEEL:  Can I just ask, I am not trying to be awkward but
    15        when we were trying to read it, it is quite difficult.  We
    16        have only one copy between us.
    18   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  There is another copy.  It is your
    19        cross-examination so -----
    21   MR. MORRIS:  I would prefer to go through it myself, but if you
    22        want to ask any questions.
    24   MR. MORRIS (To the witness):  Mr. Mallinson, which of these
    25        sheets would you like to concentrate on first, which would
    26        be the most useful to concentrate on first, in explaining
    27        of the calculations -- is it Mr. Thompson's first?
    29   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Why do you not ask which parts of the three
    30        sheets are Mr. Thompson's and which are Mr. Mallinson's?
    31        A.  Mr. Morris, the first sheet was written by me and the
    32        other two sheets written by Mr. Donald Thompson.
    34   MR. MORRIS:  Would it be helpful to go through Mr. Thompson's
    35        first?
    36        A.  His is the basis of the calculation as requested.  His
    37        figures are also the basis of the submission I made in my
    38        statement originally.
    40   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  I think that would be the sensible way, to
    41        start on page 2, got through to the end and then back to
    42        page 1.
    44   MR. MORRIS:  Right.  Obviously, there is no point in repeating
    45        everything that has been said.  The rotation of 40 years in
    46        Scotland that is suggested in the first paragraph:  In the
    47        Finnish document we looked at on Monday, the generation was
    48        described as 100 years.  Is Scotland unusual in this 40
    49        year -- is it typical or is it unusual?
    50        A.  A typical of fast growing species of coniferous trees 
    51        in areas where the climate is useful for that fast growing 
    52        and also the soil conditions are useful, and it is very 
    53        typical, therefore, of all the southern areas below
    54        Scandinavia, all of northern Europe.
    56        The reason for an 80 or 100 year cycle north of that area
    57        is entirely due to the hardness of winters and the type of
    58        species that grow preferably there.
