It was AGREED that a directive should be prepared for Mr. Keenan’s signature, asking for the immediate return of all such documents, and that the rule that all documents must be returned to the Documents Section by 4.30 p.m. daily should be re-affirmed. 3.Mr. Phelps asked that Attorneys should be requested to submit two copies of their Opening Statements, so that one could be used for reproduction while the other was in the hands of the Translation Department. This was AGREED. Mr. Horwitz suggested that reproduction of the Statements should be done in double spacing. This was AGREED.
