In an Attorney-General's reference, having regard to the severity of the offence, together with the appellant's previous criminal history, a six-year sentence for an offence of robbery was unduly lenient and would be substituted with a term of eight years' imprisonment. Further, in view of the fact that the instant offence was committed whilst on licence for an earlier offence, the Court of Appeal could see no reason why the respondent should not serve the unexpired term of 443 days of the licence period, and accordingly it was ordered to run consecutively with the newly ordered eight-year sentence.
