    I can see there may be forensic reasons for
 1doing it the other way too, but I just wonder in this case
 2whether the desirability of short cuts does not suggest
 3one sacrifices ----
 4 MR RAMPTON:     I see the attraction, but I do think it essential,
 5and the only forensic reason, apart from wanting answers
 6to my questions, is that I do want your Lordship to have
 7as full a picture as possible, because all these things
 8are contextually linked.
 9 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     I have the reports, remember.
10 MR RAMPTON:     I know.
11 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     What about the argument about Auschwitz? It
12seems to me that we are nipping at that topic from time to
13time, inevitably. I think in many ways the sooner we have
14the argument the better?
15 A. [Mr Irving]     It is Tuesday now, possibly on Thursday.
16 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     If would you like go for Thursday, yes?
17 A. [Mr Irving]     If you would limit us both to half an hour each on that.
18 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     I am all in favour of doing that.
19 MR RAMPTON:     I have said my two minutes already.
20 A. [Mr Irving]     You may have more to say after you have heard me.
21 MR RAMPTON:     We will let Mr Irving go first since essentially
22I believe it to be an objection really.
23 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     I do not think it matters who goes first.
24Would you like to go first, Mr Irving?
25 A. [Mr Irving]     It makes no difference to me either.
26 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     Good, so 10.30 tomorrow?
