     "7(1).  No witness in any action, whether a party to it or not is
liable to be asked or shall be bound to answer a question tending to show
that the witness has been guilty of adultery unless the witness has already
given evidence in the same action in disproof of the alleged adultery.".)

3.  For the purposes aforesaid cause the said witnesses to come before you
