[2001] EWCA Crim 974

A defendant could cross-examine a co-accused about credit on an earlier confession which had been ruled inadmissible because it had been made involuntarily and could also cross-examine a co-accused on relevant "spent" convictions if the co-accused had "given evidence against" the defendant within the meaning of s.1(f)(iii) Criminal Evidence Act 1898.
