Regina v Cartwright [2007] EWCA Crim 2581

“The restrictions imposed by s 41 of the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999 on the calling of evidence of, and cross-examination as to, complainants’ sexual history applied to trials conducted after the coming into force of the Sexual Offences Act 2003, in respect of sexual offences allegedly committed before that date, even though the latter statute failed to contain a saving provision specifically to that effect.”
