MRS. HOVI, Examined:
3 Q. Just go through the statement, and if you have any comments
4 to make on any of the matters raised there, if you just let
5 the court know.
7 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Do you want to do it this way -- because it
8 is for Mr. Rampton to put anything which he wants to in
11 MR. MORRIS: I know that Miss Hovi has a number of things which
12 she wants to raise. She does not want to comment on every
15 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Can you take her to them?
17 MR. MORRIS: I have not had time to go through with it with
18 her. She said that she has things she wants to say in
19 response; and that is it, really.
21 MR. RAMPTON: My Lord, I do not know what the position is; nor,
22 apparently, does Mr. Morris. If the position were that in
23 large part Miss Hovi accepted what Mr. Bone now says, that
24 obviously is going to save an enormous amount of time if it
25 is done this way. If not, of course, we are going to be
26 here for some time.
28 MR. JUSTICE BELL: I am not going to say it should be done one

32 things we would find out if Miss Hovi came back was where,
33 if at all, she accepted what Mr. Bone said and where her
34 recollection was different.
36 You go on. I think it is easier if you just let Miss Hovi
37 go on. I have a copy, so you can just refer us all to a
38 particular paragraph on a particular page.
40 (To the witness): Have you marked a copy of the statement
41 where -----
42 A. I have a marked copy for myself.
44 Q. Would it be easier for you to use that to remind yourself?
45 A. Yes, it probably would.
47 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Is there any objection?
49 MR. RAMPTON: No. I would be in favour of that in this
52 MR. JUSTICE BELL: (To the witness) Do you mind going to get
55 THE WITNESS: I have it here with me.
57 MR. MORRIS: If you just take us to the paragraphs you wish to
58 comment on?
59 A. All right. I would like to start with paragraph 3
60 concerning laboratory testing. Mr. Bone here reiterates
