You could of course refer to "the recording I made for my own notes" in your witness statement. If there is a discrepancy ebtween the recollections of what was said you could ask the judge if your could refer to the recording ... just listening to it yourself, and then say "the recording I made confirms my recollection".
The other side can then try and claim your recollection is wrong, or that the recording doesn't say that, but hopefully they (or the judge!) will ask for it to be played ..... bingo.
If the other side tries to prevent it being listened to (by you, them, or the court....), don't say a word ... whilst it then may not be admissible, it shouldn't influence the judge, but they are human... hard for them not to be swayed if it comes down to "who do they believe".
Fair point - could try that on Monday. It wouldn't be the end of the world for it to sit for a few months except there are bequeaths to two local charities, one of which could well survive if we can pay out without delay and not if we don't.
