Director of Public Prosecutions v Walsall Magistrates’ Court and Another: Admn 5 Dec 2019

Two applications for judicial review, arising out of prosecutions for driving with a breath alcohol level in excess of the statutory limit, contrary to section 5(1) of the Road Traffic Act 1988 (‘the RTA’). In both cases, following the service of a defence statement, the District Judge allowed a defence application for disclosure pursuant to section 8 of the Criminal Procedure and Investigations Act 1996 (‘the CPIA’), ordering the Crown to make disclosure of the further material sought. The DPP seeks to review the decision of the District Judge in each case and asks us to quash the orders for disclosure.
The Rt Hon the Lord Burnett of Maldon CJ and the Hon Mrs Justice Ma
