Day 194 - 01 Dec 95 - Page 03

     1   Q.   Was your job linked to some government scheme?  Just
     2        explain.
     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
    22        statement.
    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.
    28        Do you know if you are going to refer Mr. Sutcliffe to any
    29        other bundles?
    31   MR. MORRIS:  No, I do not think so, no.
    33   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Very well.
    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 
    53        instructions.
    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
