     1                                      Wednesday, 28th June 1995.
     3   MR. RAMPTON:  My Lord, before cross-examination continues, there
     4        is a matter which at some stage convenient to your
     5        Lordship, either today or tomorrow, I should wish to
     6        mention to your Lordship in chambers.
     8   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Yes, very well.  Let us see how we go with
     9        Mr. Stein's cross-examination.  In a search of my room
    10        which was brought about because I am moving rooms at the
    11        moment, I discovered copies of the New Earnings Survey,
    12        part A for 1987 and for 1990.  The 1990 gives rates of pay
    13        in various occupations during the year up to 4th April
    14        1990.
    16        What I propose to do is put them on the side here.  If
    17        anyone wants to borrow them, please ask Mr. Riley, but let
    18        Mr. Riley know who has the copies so that I know where they
    19        are at any particular point in time.  Please do not mark
    20        them in any way in case photocopies have to be made in due
    21        course.
    23   MR. MORRIS:  There is just one matter I want to bring up before
    24        we continue our cross-examination.  We have an outstanding
    25        statement to serve.  It is from the Director of Friends of
    26        the Earth and it is regarding his discussions with
    27        McDonald's in the 80s, about rainforests and the cattle
    28        industry and the US labelling laws.
    30   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Have Barlows got a copy of this?
    32   MR. MORRIS:  Yes, they can have two if they want.
    34   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  I will put it on one side and you can pick
    35        that up later.
    37   MR. MORRIS:  Just to say, if our expert from America, if we
    38        cannot afford to bring him over -- he is a Civil Evidence
    39        Act notice statement anyway -- that Mr. Secret will be
    40        called as an expert.  He can give evidence in any case on
    41        the negotiations with McDonald's, but he is also a general
    42        expert on the subject.
    44                   STANLEY RICHARD STEIN, recalled.
    45             Cross-examined by the Defendants, continued.
    47   MS. STEEL:   Mr. Stein, union representatives agents, or what
    48        Mr. Rampton called recruiting officers, would not be able
    49        to come into stores and talk to crew members with the
    50        purposes of trying to encourage them to join a union, would 
    51        they? 
    52        A.  That is correct -- the same way as insurance salesmen 
    53        or people who are soliciting other things.
    55   Q.   Insurance salesmen are not likely to be invited in by the
    56        crew, are they?
    57        A.  If we had a wide open rule there would probably be a
    58        number of solicitations on a variety of subjects.
    60   Q.   Yes, but you have put it in the Crew Handbook so it is
