     1                                    Wednesday, 31st January, 1996
     3   MR. RAMPTON:  My Lord, before the Defendants cross-examine
     4        Mr. Lemaire, I ought to say something about Mr. Bone who,
     5        as your Lordship knows, is due to give evidence on
     6        Wednesday next week.
     8   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Yes.
    10   MR. RAMPTON:  I heard yesterday that he is not in first class
    11        health.  He is going to the doctor today or tomorrow to
    12        have certain tests.  He has at the moment every intention
    13        of coming, if he is allowed to do so, next Wednesday.
    14        Whether he is allowed to come to court next week is
    15        dependent entirely on the results of these tests and the
    16        decisions of the doctors.  I mention it now because, of
    17        course, it affects Miss Hovi as well.  As soon as I have
    18        any more up to date information, I will tell
    19        your Lordship.
    21   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Yes.  Thank you.  I will not be required to
    22        sit elsewhere in the last week and a half of this term.
    23        I managed to find that out for certain yesterday evening.
    24        So you can go ahead and do your best with your other
    25        American witness.
    27   MR. MORRIS:  Yes.
    29   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  If Mr. Preston cannot sit on his scheduled
    30        days, if he cannot come back to the witness box on the
    31        days -- I think from the Wednesday onwards -- he is written
    32        in, then we have to think about who else might.  But I said
    33        at the end of last week that we should come back to the
    34        schedule towards the end of this week, and I suggest we
    35        talk about it then.
    37   MR. RAMPTON:  Yes.
    39   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  By then, Mr. Rampton may know more about
    40        Mr. Bone's state of health.
    42                       PAUL LEMAIRE, recalled
    43                    Cross-examined by Defendants
    45   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Who is going to start the cross-examination?
    47   MR. MORRIS:  I was just making a note.
    49        (To the witness):  You said you worked, I believe you said
    50        you worked, something between 35 to 40 hours a week, 
    51        something like that --- 
    52        A.  That is right, yes. 
    54   Q.   -- when you were at the Heathrow store.  Are you still at
    55        the Heathrow store?
    56        A.  That is right.
    58   Q.   And that goes back, does it, to when you first became a
    59        full-time employee?
    60        A.  As from about May 1993 when I left college and became
