Criminal law - Murder - Defence - Provocation - Lies told by accused during investigation - Direction to jury - Safety of conviction.
The defendant's conviction for murder was safe despite the judge having failed to give the jury a direction on the relevance of lies to the issue of provocation, which had not been put forward by the defendant but had been left by the judge to the jury, since it would not have affected the jury's verdict in any event.
