Examination of Witnesses (Questions 9180
9180. MR TAYLOR: I have finished all
my points, my Lord.
9181. CHAIRMAN: So I think leave it,
Lord Berkeley, until Thursday for your re-examination
9182. LORD BERKELEY: Thank you very much,
9183. CHAIRMAN: -- because I do not know
how long it is going on. This is not entirely crystal clear to
me and I think some of my colleagues may have questions to ask
as well, and it might be better to leave ourselves a little bit
9184. What we will do now is to adjourn until
ten o'clock tomorrow morning, when we are having, I think, EWS?
9185. MR ELVIN: We are having, as far
as we are aware, and we have been trying to get updates without
any great success, Network Rail, BAA and EWS. We do not know what
is going to happen tomorrow, in all honesty. There are various
discussions going on which may or may not bear fruit by tomorrow,
but the various agents representing the Petitioners are unable
to tell us at the moment. I hope that we can at least resolve
some of the issues.
9186. I have little idea other than what I have

to Heathrow, and I was going to recall Mr Berryman at some convenient
9188. CHAIRMAN: This is the westerly
9189. MR ELVIN: Yesto give your
Lordships some more information about that.
9190. CHAIRMAN: That would be very helpful.
9191. MR ELVIN: In response to my Lord,
Lord James' question last week about contingency planning and
such matters, and Lady Fookes' question about security, there
is a paper which is almost ready which we can let your Lordships
have either tomorrow or Thursday and which we hope will give you
more information on those issues.
9192. LORD JAMES OF BLACKHEATH: I would
like to remind you, Mr Elvin, that that request also included
the criteria for any modelling on safety scenarios that you had
9193. MR ELVIN: I will make sure that
those producing it are aware of that.
9194. LORD JAMES OF BLACKHEATH: Thank you.
