An application for leave to appeal seven years out of time against a conviction for theft affected by the decision in R v Preddy (1996) 3 WLR 255 was refused because there could have been alternative offences charged at the time of the prosecution. Art.7 of the European Convention on Human Rights was inapplicable.
