The transcripts of the official inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the press.
Well, I understand that, but what I am really getting at is that, as a witness, she would doubtless be entitled and will have the right to legal representation. I am just wondering whether, in her case, it goes beyond the need for that representation -- which I recognise -- into core ...
The first part of the Inquiry is a much more general analysis, and specific or individual criticism is unlikely to flow from the first part of the Inquiry, not least because of the ongoing investigation.
To what extent is your client in a different position, bearing that in mind, from ...
Thank you very much.
Mr Davies, although I will be reserving the decision to provide something in writing, you are pushing at an entirely open door.
Yes, largely but not entirely. Because if one goes to the 2006 Information Commissioner's report, there are a large number of other titles that are at least alleged to have been involved in behaviour which is at least potentially the subject of the Inquiry.
I think you can be extremely brief.
Yes, I understand the potential issues because I can readily recognise that those who are responsible for the editorship of The Times and The Sunday Times may have a slightly different view, from their broadsheet perspective, to those who operate the tabloids. And I can't believe that we can ...
It's not entirely accurate.
I've never heard.
Yes. I understand that, thank you. Thank you very much indeed.
To module 2?
I quite understand that.
I am open to all the assistance that I can gather from whomsoever in this room is able to assist me.
I understand that. Mr Phillips, let me make it abundantly clear that if the Metropolitan Police Authority feel, even though they may not have been asked for specific evidence, that they do have evidence that touches upon part 1 that they would like to submit through some witness, then they ...
I have had to be rather careful.
When you say part 2, do you mean module 2?
Thank you very much, Mr Garnham, I understand.
Anything provided it's polite.
Very well. Doubtless it will get better over time, Mr Garnham.
I think his name is Godwin, actually. I am pretty sure of it.
I understand that. Right, thank you.
Is there anybody else here that falls into that category? All right.
I think, Mr Garnham, as you were the one that suggested there was a break, you are entitled to go next.
I'd be very surprised if they couldn't. There will be nuance, of course there will, because each person will have been affected slightly differently, and many might have slightly different views. But do you know, I think we are probably grown up enough to be able to cope ...
Because it doesn't strike me that there is any sufficient dissimilarity as to suggest that there should be any more than one team. Because in one sense the victims are central, and I put that word in inverted commas for the purposes of this morning, to what is being ...
Well, there would have to be a consideration, if they applied, of Rule 7 of the 2006 Rules.
Let's deal with the other victims first, if there is anybody else here.
No, thank you very much indeed.
I will have to consider in relation to anybody else whether their interests in the outcome of the Inquiry are similar, the facts they're likely to rely on in the course of the Inquiry are similar, and whether it's fair for them to be jointly represented, because then ...
They can apply in writing. There is an issue that will have to be addressed because I notice that there are at least two other members of the Bar here for other persons who will put themselves in the category of victims, because there is going to have to be ...
I think we will come back to the Section 21 notices later. Let's deal with all the applications for core participant status first.
No, I think we will come back to that, if that's all right.
That's fine. Or open inquiry, I am not sure whether court is right, but there it is.
Well, you have heard what I have said.
I would be keen similarly to ensure that they have no less protection, but equally I will want to see the material, and one of the issues that will have to be decided quite soon is whether there is really an issue as to whether I should see it, given ...
