Yes. Ms Hollis, in one of my previous courts the way we used to do it - and this is a suggestion. I am not saying to you that this is the way you have to do it because obviously you know your witness and we don't. But the way we used to do it is you would call your witness first and get his personal particulars and then you would show him the transcript and refer him to, "Is this a transcript of evidence you gave on such-and-such a date and to your knowledge and belief is that true and correct?", and then tender the witness for cross-examination, tender the transcripts and then turn the witness over for cross-examination. That is just one way of doing it.
