(f) Depositions may also be taken and submitted on written interrogatories in substantially the same manner as depositions taken by oral examination. Ordinarily such procedure will only be authorized if necessary to achieve the purposes of an oral deposition and to serve the balance of convenience of the parties. The interrogatories shall be filed in quadruplicate with two copies of the application and a copy of each shall be served on each party. Within seven (7) days after service any party may file with the person to whom application was made two copies of his objections, if any, to such interrogatories and may file such cross-interrogatories as he desires to submit. Cross-interrogatories shall be filed in quadruplicate, and a copy thereof together with a copy of any objections to interrogatories, shall be served on each party, who shall have five (5) days thereafter to file and serve his objections, if any, to such cross-interrogatories. Objections to interrogatories or crossinterrogatories shall be settled by the Board or hearing officer considering the application. Objections to interrogatories shall be made before the order for taking the deposition issues and if not so made shall be deemed waived. When a deposition is taken upon written interrogatories, and cross-interrogatories, no party shall be present or represented, and no person other than the witness, a stenographic reporter, and the officer shall be present at the examination of the witness, which fact shall be certified by the officer, who shall propound the interrogatories and cross-interrogatories to the witness in their order and reduce the testimony to writing in the witness' own words. The provisions of paragraph (e) of this section shall be applicable to depositions taken in accordance with this paragraph.

(g) All depositions shall conform to the specifications of g 302.3 except that the filing of three copies thereof shall be sufficient. Any fees of a witness, the stenographer, or the officer designated to take the deposition shall be paid by the person at whose instance the deposition is taken.

(h) The fact that a deposition is taken and filed in a proceeding as provided in this section does not constitute a determination that it is admissible in evidence or that it may be used in the

proceeding. Only such part or the whole of a deposition as is received in evidence at a hearing shall constitute a part of the record in such proceeding upon which a decision may be based. § 302.21 Attendance fees and mileage.

(a) Where tender of attendance fees and mileage is a condition of compliance with subpena. No person whose attendance at a hearing or whose deposition is to be taken shall be obliged to respond to a subpena unless upon a service of the subpena he is tendered attendance fees and mileage by the party at whose instance he is called in accordance with the requirements of paragraph ib) of this section: Provided, That a witness summoned at the instance of the Board or one of its employees, or a salaried employee of the United States summoned to testify as to matters related to his public employment, need not be tendered such fees or mileage at that time.

(b) Amount of mileage and attendance fees to be paid.
