"We are still waiting to receive documents that should have been given to us in November-December 2016 and January 2017," he said.

"There were further discussions in June 2018 and here we are still waiting for them.

"It is undesirable."

Appearing for Ardent Leisure, Bruce Hodgkinson said every effort was being made to deliver all documents deemed relevant to the inquest.
