(1) A witness statement which stands as evidence in chief is open to inspection during the course of proceedings unless the Court orders otherwise.
(2) Any person may ask for a direction that a witness statement is not open to inspection, but the Court will not make such a direction unless it is satisfied that a witness statement should not be open to inspection because of the interests of justice, the public interest, the nature of any expert evidence in the statement or the nature of any confidential information in it (including information relating to personal financial matters).
(3) The Court may exclude from inspection words or passages in the statement.
