[2002] EWCA Crim 2954

It would be expected that procedural failure would only result in a lack of jurisdiction if that was necessary to ensure that the criminal justice system served the interests of justice and thus the public or where there was at least a real possibility of the defendant suffering prejudice as a consequence of the procedural failure. When making a confiscation order a statement of a period of postponement was not a condition precedent for there to be jurisdiction to make the order.

CA (Crim Div) (Lord Woolf of Barnes LCJ, Holland J, Keith J)
