Vehicle and Operator Services Agency v George Jenkins Transport Ltd: Admn 20 Nov 2003

The prosecutor Agency appealed by way of case stated against a decision refusing to allow them to admit documentary evidence.
Held: The appeal was dismissed, but the court took the opportunity to say that a case stated did not need as in this case to set out the full details of some 200 informations which did not affect the ruling. A case stated should set out the facts as found or accepted. The magistrates should if necessary seek assistance from the advocates in drafting the agreed statement of facts, and setting out any areas of disagreement.
