 1 MR IRVING:     Have a stab at it now and see if we can deal with
 3 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     Have you rather put them to the back of your
 4mind because they seem to have not really featured in the
 6 A. [Professor Richard John Evans]     I thought we were not going to discuss these.
 7 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     The position is Mr Rampton has not relied on
 8it, but that does not stop Mr Irving reintroducing that
 9issue. If you say you need to bone up on it?
10 A. [Professor Richard John Evans]     No, I am happy to do it now.
11 MR IRVING:     I certainly rely on them.
12 MR RAMPTON:     Mr Irving does. He may be making a mistake there,
13because he does not know the reason why I decided not to.
14That is his privilege to put his foot in his mouth, if
15that is what is going to happen. I do not know. I do
16worry that it may take more than a quarter of an hour
17though, because it is quite complicated.
18 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     I am quite keen to use up all the available
19time, because I am anxious to get Professor Evans out of

 5Evans out of the box.
 6 MR RAMPTON:     I can speak only about my re-examination at the
 7moment which consists of but two topics.
 8 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     So it may be an hour, an hour and a half?
 9 MR RAMPTON:     Nothing like that. It may be half an hour, maybe
10three-quarters of an hour.
11 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     Are you reasonably confident?
12 MR IRVING:     Totally confident and, if not, then it is my own
14 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     I would not want to leave it on that basis.
15Then I think let us adjourn now.
16 MR IRVING:     I think we have broken through the barbed wired.
17We are right through the mine field now and we are out in
18the open desert and our guns are blazing.
19 MR JUSTICE GRAY:     I had forgotten about the Roman Jews as
20well. So we are not sitting tomorrow, but Monday at 10.30
