Abstract

I argued that the Law Commission's proposal fro a new auxiliary concept of "preparation", in addition to the existing law on "attempts" is sound. However, the two concepts would need to be better differentiated in order to allow for early intervention by the police whilst ensuring that the law did not criminalise early preparatory actions where the defendant was not yet "committed" to the offence.
