A judge's refusal to allow the defence to put a specific question to a rape victim's mother on the grounds that it was irrelevant was wrong as it was possible that an answer could have been given that was relevant to the issue in the case. However, the application had been rightly refused as the court was unable to envisage any answer which might have significantly helped the defendant's case.
