[2007] UKPC 9

The power to increase a sentence had to be exercised sparingly and only in cases where the sentence imposed by the trial judge was manifestly inadequate. An applicant for leave to appeal or an appellant had to be given an indication by the appellate court of its intention to consider an increase in sentence and an opportunity to address the court on the increase or to ask for leave to withdraw.
