 1 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     No. I do not think I am going to invite
 2that. I feel fairly deluged anyway with paper. I really
 3do. I have in mind both what you said were the reasons
 4why you at that stage disputed the authenticity, and
 5I know you still question the authenticity of that
 6document, but I also have in mind, in a general sense, the
 7explanations that were given by Professor van Pelt. Now,
 8anything else?
 9 MR RAMPTON:     I hope what I am going to say will be a joint
10request. Because of all, as your Lordship can see, the
11interest in this case, much of it from overseas, I would
12ask that, perhaps a bit unusually, we could have --
13whenever the judgment may be, that is not what I am asking
14-- some reasonable advance notice of the date.
15 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     Yes. I am anxious for all sorts of reasons,
16including the consideration you have just mentioned, that
17it should happen sooner rather than later, but I do not
18know how much notice is in practical terms really
19required, because I will not know until quite shortly
20before I actually finish that I am actually going to
21finish on a particular day. I mean two or three days. Is
22that far too short?
23 MR RAMPTON:     The only thing perhaps, if I might gently suggest
24it, is your Lordship might in fact finish before the day
25of judgment, if you know what I mean, in other words
26finish writing and have a fixed day, so that, even if your

 1Lordship finished before that day is reached----
 2 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     Yes, all right.
 3 MR RAMPTON:     I think a week actually would in all the
 4circumstances ----
 5 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     That is what you want? Mr Irving, I do not
 6suppose you disagree with that, do you?
 7 MR IRVING:     I have my own reasons for wanting to have a lot of
 8advance notice please, yes.
 9 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     I will do that. I think that is sensible.
10You are going to forfeit the last word, are you?
