     1                                      Wednesday, 12th July 1995.
     3   MR. MORRIS:  I am just trying to sort our papers out.  Thank you
     4        for the delay.
     6        There is something, while I am sorting my papers out.  It
     7        was suggested that we provide copies of the letters we have
     8        sent to Barlow Lyde and Gilbert, which I have done.  I do
     9        not know when your transcript file ceased to have our
    10        letters in it.
    12   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  What I think you should do -- I have not
    13        marked it, and I do not mind you having it -- is take my
    14        bundle of correspondence and look at it and put into it ---
    16   MR. MORRIS:  All right, OK.
    18   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  -- any copies of letters which you have
    19        written.  Is that a bundle of them that you have there?
    21   MR. MORRIS:  That is it, basically.
    23   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  What I suggest you do is, for the time being,
    24        give that bundle to Mrs. Brindley-Codd, so she can just
    25        check through it and make sure there is nothing in it which
    26        should not go into the correspondence bundle which I am
    27        going to read.
    29   MR. MORRIS:  Right.
    31   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Assuming she takes no exception to any
    32        letters going in, ask Mr. Riley to get my correspondence
    33        bundle, I will put it out here, and insert them in in their
    34        chronological place.
    36   MR. MORRIS:  Yes.  If that be the case, then I think the
    37        Plaintiffs should hereafter submit letters that they are
    38        going to put in to us before they are given to -----
    40   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Very well, yes.   Actually, you know, I do
    41        not think that is necessary.  There is no harm in me seeing
    42        any letter; and unless I give an example, there are some
    43        letters which should not go into a judge's bundle -- I am
    44        not suggesting it is this case -- but if they refer to any
    45        kind of negotiation, the judge should not see them.  Now,
    46        I am prepared absolutely to trust Mrs. Brindley-Codd as to
    47        that.  She knows what should go in and what should not.
    48        You are not legally qualified, and, with the best will in
    49        the world, you might not appreciate what ought not to go
    50        in, if anything.  For that reason, I think all you should 
    51        do is show them to Mrs. Brindley-Codd, so that she can make 
    52        sure it is all right for them to go in.  I do not think you 
    53        need vet hers.  You can assume that anything which is
    54        written to you and has "cc" and my name on it, I am going
    55        to get a copy of it.
    57   MS. STEEL:   I think there have been other ones that have gone
    58        in.  For example, we do remember last year there was an
    59        attendance note that went in which we had not seen.
