In a case where obtaining property by deception was charged on the basis of specific representations particularised in a count, it was appropriate as a matter of practice to direct the jury specifically on the question of materiality. However, an appeal was not allowed on that basis alone where the judge had properly directed the jury on the issue of causation.
