Power to exclude evidence of probative value
Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
“Cases would be rare in which a breach of procedural rules would entitle a court to exclude evidence of substantial probative value and a court should be most reluctant to exclude evidence of that quality for such a breach; nevertheless there would be cases where the only way in which the court could ensure fairness was by excluding evidence even of substantial probative value.”
