The trial judge's ruling that the prosecution might lead evidence about the accused's character was unimpeachable and did not result in unfairness. Code D of the statutory Code of Practice was mandatory and D:2.3 only exempted the duty to hold a parade in those circumstances expressly provided for by the Code. * Leave to appeal to the House of Lords granted.
