Criminal law - Committal - Custody time limits - Whether prosecution required to make full disclosure of evidence to defence on an application for an extension of custody time limits - s 22(3).
In so far as it was necessary for a defendant to test any aspect of an application by the prosecution for the extension of the custody time limit, the defence should be provided with such material as would enable them to do that. However, formal disclosure such as was appropriate prior to trial was not appropriate prior to an application for bail or for extension of custody time limits so long as the defendant was in a position that he could properly protect his interests that would suffice.
