[2006] EWCA Crim 838

Where a defendant company had pleaded guilty to failing to discharge a duty of care under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 s.3 , contrary to s.33(1)(a) of that Act, the sentence of a large fine was excessive, having regard to the facts of the case, and in the light of the judge's indication that a fine following a guilty plea would be less than that sum.

CA (Crim Div) (Lord Phillips LCJ, Andrew Smith J, Judge Wilkie)
