Day 194 - 01 Dec 95 - Page 03
1 Q. Was your job linked to some government scheme? Just
3 A. The job at McDonald's?
5 Q. Yes.
6 A. Yes. There was a scheme called Restart, or possibly
7 Job Start; they were the two schemes at the time. The
8 scheme was for people who were doing 35 hours or more a
9 week, in other words, a full-time job, but were being paid
10 a low wage, and they would give you an additional £20 a
11 week for the first year.
13 Q. Who would give you?
14 A. The Government, through whatever agency it was at the
15 time, the Department of -- probably -- Employment. It was
16 arranged through the Job Centre, so it would have been.
18 Q. So you got £20 on top of your McDonald's wage?
19 A. Yes.
21 MR. MORRIS: It might be useful to get a copy of your
24 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Can you do that, Mr. Riley, please -- pale
25 blue volume II -- if you could give it complete to
26 Mr. Sutcliffe. It is divider 8, Mr. Sutcliffe.

35 MR. MORRIS: I will just read out sections and ask you questions
36 about them.
38 MR. RAMPTON: My Lord, before that happens, I have something to
39 say, I am afraid. It grieves me to have to say it, it
40 really does. I do not mind the statement being read at
41 all, of course. On 15th June, Mr. David Sexton gave
42 evidence to your Lordship to deal with what Mr. Sutcliffe
43 had said in his statement. When Mr. Sexton had finished --
44 it is, for the Defendants' benefit, day 135.
46 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Yes.
48 MR. RAMPTON: I said to your Lordship that -- Mr. Sutcliffe,
49 your Lordship will remember, was in court on ------
51 MR. JUSTICE BELL: I remember I said that Mr. Morris should take
52 the opportunity before Mr. Sutcliffe left to take further
55 MR. RAMPTON: And, what is more, having done so, if there was
56 any additional detail which Mr. Sutcliffe was able to
57 give -- as your Lordship will notice, his statement in that
58 respect is a bit bare so far as names and so on are
59 concerned -- Mr. Morris and Ms. Steel were to send those
60 details to us. That was on 15th June, and Mr. Sutcliffe
