PUBLISHED October 31, 2006

[2006] EWCA Crim 2777

Where there were several transactions in a conspiracy to supply controlled drugs, it was not appropriate to add those transactions up and reach a total as though it were a single overall transaction. It was the scale and nature of the offenders' operation that mattered, including the size of the individual transactions, their frequency and the total amount of drugs handled.
