R v C [2009] UKHL 42; [2009] WLR (D) 272

“The words of s 30(2)(a) of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 ‘or for any other reason’ were wide enough to include an irrational fear preventing the free exercise of choice, and inability to communicate the choice made within s 30(2)(b) was not limited to physical inability.”
