19 Admissibility of hearsay statements contained in business records


A hearsay statement contained in a business record is admissible if—


the person who supplied the information used for the composition of the record is unavailable as a witness; or


the Judge considers no useful purpose would be served by requiring that person to be a witness as that person cannot reasonably be expected (having regard to the time that has elapsed since he or she supplied the information and to all the other circumstances of the case) to recollect the matters dealt with in the information he or she supplied; or


the Judge considers that undue expense or delay would be caused if that person were required to be a witness.
