Regina v. M and others (No. 2)
“Where a ruling made at a preparatory hearing was overturned on appeal and the Court of Appeal differently constituted in a subsequent case held that the earlier case had been decided per incuriam the judge was bound to follow the later decision in the interests of justice as a whole and on the basis that any rulings of law made at preparatory hearings had correctly to reflect the law which would govern the trial.”
