Abstract

Based upon empirical research, this article reveals serious processual deficiencies in the reunite operation of sections 18, 20 and 47 of the Offences Against the Person Act 1861. It questions the appropriateness of recent policy initiatives designed to clarify and standardise decision-making procedures in respect of these offences and challenges the adequacy of the Government's proposals for legal reform.
