Can I just make some supplementary submissions in that case?
I don't touch, sir, if I may say so, on issues of abuse or potential abuse or contempt. It's premature at this stage. What may happen, we simply don't know, and how that may be viewed, we also simply don't know.
I'm more concerned with the practicalities now, and the practicalities are that there are likely to be a number of people in a position who, like my client, possibly some who may not be like my client, who want to help, but find that the restrictions being placed upon them make it difficult for them to assist.
For example, I have previously raised the fundamental importance of having documents and contextual documents from which to inform my client in relation to any topics that she is asked. There is clearly now a suggestion -- and I don't criticise this, but it obviously has practical ramifications, that if someone in my client's position does not have such documents, she or someone in that position is going to be substantially hamstrung before they even start to try and assist. That is a practical difficulty.
