The expression "need not be granted bail" in the Bail Act 1976 Sch.1 para.2 and the expression "may not be granted bail" in Sch.1 para.6 of the Act did not each mean that the court had a discretion to grant bail. "Need not" conveyed a discretion but "may not" was prohibitive and reversed the general principle that bail should only be refused if there was good reason to refuse it.
