||M Jarman QC (instructed by the Director of Public Prosecutions) for the prosecution.
||The justices did not appear and were not represented.
||28 January 2002
Magistrates - Adjournment - Remittal for rehearing - Prosecution not being told of trial date - Prosecution applying for adjournment - Justices refusing adjournment - Whether justices exercising discretion wrongly - Whether court should remit matter for hearing.
A decision of justices to refuse an adjournment requested by the prosecution, with the result that the informations were dismissed, was overturned; the prosecution had not been at fault in failing to appreciate the timetable, and thus the decision to adjourn had been irrational.
