Lord Justice Lloyd:
"The District Judge therefore checked the transcript that had been returned to the transcribers and realized that the wrong copy had been sent, for which she apologises."
On that basis it was said that the correct approved transcript should be sent to the parties and to the higher court for the further appeal. That resulted in a further version of the transcript being produced which Mr Carr has shown me this morning and which I have had a short opportunity to consider. I had earlier this morning read both of the other versions of the transcript so that the matter was clear in my mind. So far as I can see, the new transcript, the one made available in November, is in substance the same as the other versions of the transcripts, although undoubtedly in terms of its detailed arrangement it is somewhat different.

"Preparing for trial, checking court bundles, mortgage statements, Libor calculations, discussing matter with DDJ George and counsel, collating historical office copies, drafting forms of authority."
That is said to account for eight hours and 12 minutes of the time of a grade C fee earner.
Order: Application adjourned
