Although an indictment which covered an unnecessarily wide period of dates inevitably created problems when there was an issue as to whether it was necessary for the defendant to have possessed the requisite intent for the entirety of the period covered by the indictment, or only some part of it, any deficiency in the summing-up had been cured by a further direction to the jury, and the defendant's conviction could not be said to be unsafe.
