     2   MS. STEEL:  No, it is the first one then.
     4   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Paragraph 21?
     6   MS. STEEL:  Paragraph 21, a sentence has been cut out of that
     7        which reads:  "We have a fully equipped gymnasium at Head
     8        Office and two luxury holiday apartments, one in the
     9        Algarve and one in the Costa Del Sol, which are used for
    10        rewarding high performers".  That is about the salaried
    11        staff.
    13   MR. RAMPTON:  My Lord, that is in my version, so I do not know
    14        what has happened.  I have exactly the same words as
    15        Ms. Steel.
    17   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  I think you possibly have -- this is
    18        paragraph 21 on page 9 of the statement, is it?
    20   MS. STEEL:   Yes.
    22   MR. RAMPTON:  My Lord, I am not understanding what the point
    23        is?  Ms. Steel appears to have a statement which is the
    24        same as mine.
    26   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  It is not the same as mine which is what is
    27        in the bundle.
    29   MR. RAMPTON:  I understand that.
    31   MS. STEEL:  It is not the same as the one that is in the trial
    32        bundle.
    34   MR. RAMPTON:  My Lord, that does not matter.  If the Defendants
    35        have the same statement as I have, then they are at no
    36        disadvantage.
    38   MS. STEEL:  It does matter because a different statement was put
    39        in the trial bundles without notification.  This was the
    40        one we were working from.  It was yesterday, because I had
    41        some notes from Simon Alenny who had commented on
    42        Mr. Nicholson's statement.
    44   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  You carry on with your submission.  Tell me
    45        what other differences are there?
    47   MS. STEEL:  After paragraph 21 there is a whole paragraph that
    48        has been cut out which reads:  "Thus, the pay conditions
    49        for all McDonald's employees is comparable to and usually
    50        often surpasses that of our competitors and exceeds on 
    51        almost all occasions the minimum wage".  The whole of that 
    52        has been cut out.  The paragraphs are actually numbered 
    53        differently in the two statements from then on, so it gets
    54        a bit more complicated.
    56   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Yes, but that is a consequence of missing a
    57        paragraph out, is it not.
    59   MS. STEEL:  Yes.  If you turn to paragraph 25 of the statement
    60        that you have after:  "Nonetheless, staff are discouraged
