Day 209 - 25 Jan 96 - Page 03

     1        like to think about it.
     3   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Yes.  I will say, myself, I cannot really see
     4        why Mr. Morris should not have leave to call him in a
     5        situation where the terms of his resignation have cropped
     6        up to some extent, and his statement -- we have had his
     7        letter for just a little while now, and his statement dated
     8        24th January does not seek to add anything to that letter
     9        or to the matters in Mr. Logan's statement.
    11   MR. RAMPTON:  My Lord, the last sentence says "a more detailed
    12        statement" ------
    14   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  That is another matter.
    16   MR. RAMPTON:  Quite.
    18   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  But we will have to wait and see about that.
    20   MR. RAMPTON:  Yes.  If his evidence is confined to what
    21        Mr. Logan says, subject to the two exceptions in this
    22        statement and to the terms of his letter, I do not know
    23        that I will object.  I might have to take more detailed
    24        instructions on the letter than I was able to do in the
    25        time available, since I was only given it on Monday.
    27   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Perhaps we ought to wait and see.
    28        Mr. Morris, do you know when the more detailed statement is
    29        going to be forthcoming, first, and, secondly, whether it
    30        is detailed just to the extent that it sets out the matters
    31        which are set out in Mr. Logan's statement, or is going to
    32        add matters?
    34   MR. MORRIS:  I do not know.  I only spoke to Mr. Olive very
    35        briefly on Tuesday evening for the first time.  He has not
    36        got a home phone number, so far as I understand, so he just
    37        said he would do something like that, give it to Mr. Logan,
    38        and do a more detailed statement when he could.  So I could
    39        encourage him to do it as quickly as possible.
    41   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  I think you should while we have Bath on our
    42        mind, and then we can sort out what is going to happen
    43        about his evidence.
    45   MR. MORRIS:  Yes.  There is one other document to hand over,
    46        which is relating to Mr. Logan's -- it is just something
    47        Mr. Logan plans to bring up when we are going through the
    48        documents.  It is just he picked out one of the names at
    49        random and did some work on the actual documents that have
    50        been disclosed.  We will come to that a bit later on. 
    52   MR. RAMPTON:  My Lord, may I say something which I would have 
    53        said yesterday afternoon had it not been that we ended late
    54        and Mr. Morris wanted to get off?  I am a bit unhappy
    55        about, what shall I say, an unforecast ramble through the
    56        documents.  There are two reasons for that:  first, if it
    57        goes anywhere beyond what Mr. Logan has already said in his
    58        various statements -- I take there to be at least three at
    59        the moment -- it is quite plainly in breach of your
    60        Lordship's order as to such matters; second and connected,
