     2   MR. RAMPTON:  My Lord, Mr. Fairgrieve is here but your Lordship
     3        is provided with some information about the schedule before
     4        Mr. Fairgrieve goes back into the witness box.  Our
     5        proposed running order for next week, from Monday 9th,
     6        assuming we finish Mr. Nicholson this week, would be Denise
     7        Pearce, Matthew Howes, and Brian Bishop to start, the first
     8        two I anticipate shortly.  I intend having
     9        Mr. Bishop here in the hope we start on Monday.
    11   MR. JUSTICE BELL: Yes.
    13   MR. RAMPTON:  On Tuesday 11th, I shall also have Mr. Pocklington
    14        here.  I hope Mr. Bishop may finish on 11th and
    15        Mr. Pocklington starts.  On Wednesday 12th, in addition to
    16        Mr. Pocklington, if he has not finished, I shall have
    17        Mr. Clare here, and on Thursday 13th, Mr. Clare again, and
    18        Mr. Russell.  That is when, unless something funny happens
    19        to the case, my oral evidence will end, either on that day
    20        or the following, but Mr. Russell will be my last witness.
    22   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Yes.  You said you had been able to pencil in
    23        some of your--
    25   MS. STEEL:   Yes, we have, obviously, Crawford, and pencilled in
    26        Professor Crawford for 17th and 18th, Jeffrey--
    28   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  He is fairly firm is he not?
    30   MS. STEEL:   Yes, he is.  The only problem is that he has gone
    31        off to America without doing the supplementary statement,
    32        but, I mean, he has to come back anyway and he knows that.
    34   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Yes, we will see where we get to on that.
    36   MS. STEEL:   Jeffrey Cannon on 19th, Jane Brophy on 20th,
    37        Danny Olive on 21st, Mr. Gravett on 25th, and we are not
    38        really sure how long the Plaintiffs might want to question
    39        him because, we thought -- we do not really know how long
    40        they are going to take -- it would be helpful if they could
    41        give some indication of whether he is likely to take longer
    42        than a day.
    44   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Are you able to help on that, Mr. Rampton?
    46   MR. RAMPTON:  No, because for one thing we do not know how long
    47        he is going to be in chief.  I have not had any
    48        supplementary statement from him.  I do not know if there
    49        is one, he is in some sense quite an important witness, in
    50        some senses, if his evidence-in-chief took any considerable 
    51        time then I would not be able to finish him on 25th. 
    53   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  No, just allow 25th for Mr. Gravett for the
    54        moment.
    56   MS. STEEL:   We are going to provisionally call Miss Laporte
    57        after Mr. Gravett.
    59   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  Call?
