[1962] 1 All ER 569

Jones v Director of Public Prosecutions

HOUSE OF LORDS

VISCOUNT SIMONDS, LORD REID, LORD DENNING, LORD MORRIS OF BORTH-Y-GEST AND LORD DEVLIN

2, 6, 7 NOVEMBER 1961, 7 FEBRUARY 1962

LORD REID.

My Lords, the appellant was convicted on 19 June 1961, of the murder of a young girl on 28 October 1960. This appeal comes before your Lordships because the Court of Criminal Appeal have certified that a point of law of general public importance is involved. This certificate does not state what the point of law is. In my opinion it would be proper and convenient if in future such certificates state what is the point of law which is certified. But it is now clear what is the point of law which your Lordships have to consider. It is whether certain questions put to the accused in cross-examination were prohibited by s 1 proviso (f) of the Criminal Evidence Act, 1898.
