[2007] UKPC 31

The St Lucia Criminal Code s.21(b) was intended to widen the defence of insanity by enabling it to be made out as soon as a defendant was proved to have been under the influence of a delusion, even if the lack of knowledge required by s.21(a) could not be established.

PC (StL) (Lord Hoffmann, Lord Rodger of Earlsferry, Lord Carswell, Sir Christopher Rose, Baroness Hale of Richmond)
