4 Cross-examined by the Defendants, continued
6 MS. STEEL: I do not know whether this is a question for the
7 witness or a question that perhaps the Plaintiffs'
8 solicitors might be able to help with, but in the new
9 document, the 'new brand audit research' dated July 1992,
10 in tab 6, second part, on page 3 it refers to table 1 and
11 table 2 in the methodology and sample part, and the first
12 table that I can find in here is table 4. So, I do not
13 know where tables 1 to 3 are.
15 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Page 3?
17 MS. STEEL: Yes.
19 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Do you mean the final report?
21 MS. STEEL: The final report, yes.
23 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Do you know about that?
24 A. No, I am just trying to--
26 MR. RAMPTON: I do not either. I do not even know whether these
27 documents were disclosed in whole or in part. My belief is
28 it is Mr. Atkinson who attended to that particular matter

36 research company and is what they had in their files. It
37 may not be complete, but it was all that we had and they
38 had. In our records the original document may well have
39 contained more pages, but this was all they had, so we
40 reproduced directly what they still had in their files.
42 MS. STEEL: When you saw it, presumably you would have seen
43 table 1 and table 2 and table 3?
44 A. Presumably, when I saw it originally, yes. Let me
47 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Well, look, do not get bogged down. If your
48 evidence is that this is what you managed to find, that is
49 your evidence.
51 MS. STEEL: The witness does not know if parts of it were
52 blanked out.
54 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Well?
55 A. They certainly were not blanked out.
57 MS. STEEL: Not by you, by the solicitors.
59 MR. JUSTICE BELL: He thinks this is what they have got; it may
60 not be complete, but it is what they have. If that turns
