White v Procurator Fiscal, Perth: HCJ 27 Jan 1999

The defendant challenged his conviction for supplying false information on applying for a shotgun certificate. He had said that he had no convictions, but failed to disclose an adminishment, refusing to add the case to the application, having explained to the constable that he had not been convicted.
Held: ‘There may have been an error in law in not appreciating that a conviction such as this was a conviction but we are satisfied that this was a false statement made by the appellant and that there was corroboration.’
