“The fact that an appeal from the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division only lay to the Supreme Court if the Court of Appeal certified that a point of law of general public importance was involved in its decision did not amount to a denial of the essence of an appellant’s right of access to the Supreme Court and was not incompatible with articles 6 and 14 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.”

“The High Court has supervisory power over the Crown Court, but it is limited. It does not include ‘matters relating to trial on indictment’. The reason for this limitation is that it is in the interests of justice for trials to proceed without being delayed by appeals and applications to the High Court.”
