Hon Rogers VP:

1. This is a renewed application for leave to appeal to this court from the judgment of Cheung J. In that judgment the judge increasedan amount of costs which had been awarded in favour of the 3rd Defendant against whom an action had been struck out. The Registrarhad ordered the sum of $8,710 in costs to the 3rd Defendant and the judge increased that to $14,400. He also ordered $2,600 in respectof costs for the hearing before the Judge.

2. The Judge came to his decision at the conclusion of a very lengthy and detailed judgment and, in my view, I can see no grounds foraltering it. I cannot see that there are any grounds for giving leave to appeal on this matter.

Hon Le Pichon JA:

3. I agree.
