Day 265 - 19 Jun 96 - Page 02
1 19th June 1996.
3 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Miss Steel called to say she would be late
4 and to go on without her.
6 MR. MORRIS: OK. Did she say what time she might arrive?
8 MR. JUSTICE BELL: No, the message did not extend to that.
10 MR. MORRIS: Can I just sort my papers out?
12 MR. JUSTICE BELL: At some stage, I want to talk about the fact
13 that Mr. Claire cannot come tomorrow and what, if anything,
14 we might do instead. But it seems to me the best thing to
15 do is to get on with Mr. Cannon and talk about that later
16 when Miss Steel hopefully will be here anyway.
18 MR. MORRIS: OK.
20 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Do you want to recall Mr. Cannon again?
22 Geoffrey Cannon, recalled
24 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Mr. Cannon was sworn before. Yes.
26 MR. MORRIS: Mr. Cannon, I think we should work from the
27 statements in the witness bundles. If you can get it out,
28 I do not know if someone can help you?
30 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Well, it is pale blue, volume 1. Only from
31 the third statement, not the first two.
33 MR. MORRIS: Yes, but I was going to ask him a couple of
34 questions about the first two statements to see if it still
35 stands because Mr. Cannon is to be asked about whether
36 things have changed or not.
38 Now, there should be three statements in there?
39 A. I do not think this is the right book, but it might
40 speed things up if I could have that pile of stuff behind
41 you because my previous statements are in there. I did not
42 know you wanted to refer to them.
44 MR. RAMPTON: I am sorry not to be able to help.
45 A. I am sorry, I do have them here. I beg your pardon.
46 If you are referring, Mr. Steel (sic), to the statement of
47 September 27th and my original statement, yes, I do have
48 them here.
50 MR. MORRIS: Right, now the statement that was done last week,
51 is that there as well?
52 A. Yes.
54 Q. Do you have a copy yourself?
55 A. Yes.
57 Q. OK. Before we go into the evidence I want to talk about
58 your own position.
60 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Take that volume. Can you bring it round in
