3 MR. MORRIS: Thank you for the delay there; we had a bit of
4 trouble getting in. There are a couple of brief
5 administrative matters. There were documents served at the
6 end of last week, miscellaneous hygiene and welfare/food
7 poisoning documents which I presume -----
9 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Served by you?
11 MR. MORRIS: By us on the Plaintiffs. You should have a set.
12 I think it was suggested opening a new file just devoted to
13 Defence Supplementary List.
15 MR. JUSTICE BELL: I think that would be helpful, yes.
17 MR. MORRIS: Otherwise we will never find things.
19 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Are you eventually going to put documents you
20 have produced in the past in that file or are you going to
21 start from scratch now with this?
23 MR. MORRIS: At the moment we are starting from scratch because
24 we do not have a record, although Mrs. Brinley-Codd has
25 been making a record.
27 MR. JUSTICE BELL: I will open a file which I will call
28 something like "Documents produced by the Defendants in
29 court" or something like that.
31 MR. MORRIS: Yes.

38 the headings of the case.
40 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Yes. Very well. I will put in the ----
42 MR. MORRIS: Hygiene and welfare -- this is amalgamated hygiene
43 and welfare.
45 MR. JUSTICE BELL: It occurred to me that the two very much go
46 together. Although I think advertising is 4, food
47 poisoning 5 and animal welfare 6, if one reads the leaflet,
48 it goes from advertising to an allegation about animal
49 welfare, by virtue of saying "that if children really knew
50 the facts", or words to the effect, "they would be put
51 off", and then food poisoning. So, it may well be that the
52 logical approach is to look at the advertising and then go
53 on to animal welfare and food poisoning as one item after
54 that. Yes. Thank you.
56 MR. MORRIS: I have copied the relevant parts of the references
57 of Mr. Hopkins as well, but I do not have them together in
58 a list. There is one question in terms of procedure
59 between the parties. I do not know if the Plaintiffs are
60 now sending you copies of all letters that they write as a
