Day 116 - 26 Apr 95 - Page 02

     1                                      Wednesday, 26th April, 1995.
     3   MR. RAMPTON:  My Lord, before I call Mr. Nicholson, there are a
     4        couple of things, administrative matters, I would like to
     5        attend to, if I may?  The first is to remind your Lordship
     6        that on the last day we sat, which was 6th April, at the
     7        end of that day your Lordship said to the Defendants that
     8        what your Lordship would like them to do is when they came
     9        back at 2 o'clock on Wednesday, 26th, that is today, bring
    10        with them a list of those witnesses who have indicated that
    11        they are going to come to court to give evidence.  That,
    12        your Lordship said, should happen before Mr. Nicholson gave
    13        his evidence.  That is the Defendants' employment
    14        witnesses.
    16   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  What is the position, Mr. Morris?  I think
    17        you were, essentially, dealing with it, were you not?
    19   MR. MORRIS:  Yes.  The news is that we have had so far seven
    20        replies.  The only person that indicated that he does not
    21        wish to attend, although of course we have the right to
    22        subpoena him, is Dave Townsend from Swindon.  There is
    23        another witness from the Swindon store.
    25   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  So that point is covered by someone to some
    26        extent on your positive list?
    28   MR. MORRIS:  Yes, I am trying to contact the other person on the
    29        phone.  I left a message on his answer phone last night.
    31   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Yes.  Can you give the names?  You can either
    32        read them out now, or if you would prefer just to hand a
    33        list to Mrs. Brinley-Codd and to me, you can do it that
    34        way.
    36   MR. MORRIS:  I will just read them out.
    38   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  These are the ones who have replied in a
    39        positive fashion, are they?
    41   MR. MORRIS:  These are the ones who have actually filled in the
    42        form that I sent.  I have spoken to some by phone anyway,
    43        but I only spoke to a few because I was waiting for
    44        replies, but Mr. Terry Pattison confirmed -- he is the
    45        former Industrial Editor of the Daily Mirror -- Peter
    46        Sutcliffe, Sarah Baker, Harriette Lamb, Kate, I think it
    47        is, Harrison, it may be Kathy Harrison, and Seamac Alemi
    48        have all confirmed.  There are two, I am not sure whether
    49        we put Civil Evidence Act notices on them or not, who are
    50        abroad although they actually worked in this country, but 
    51        they were living abroad when they agreed last summer, or 
    52        the summer before, to be witnesses.  That was Dave McGee 
    53        and Nick McGill.  I cannot remember now whether we put
    54        Civil Evidence Act Notice -----
    56   MR. RAMPTON:  Yes.
    58   MR. MORRIS:  We did, okay.
    60   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  What is the initial of McGill?
