Regina v Magro and others [2010] EWCA Crim 1575; [2010] WLR (D) 176

“Although a five-judge constitution of the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division) had a discretion to decide that a previous decision of that court should not be treated as a binding decision when it was wrong, it was not entitled to disregard or deprive the only decision of a three-judge constitution of the court of its authority on a distinct and clearly identified point of law, reached after full argument and close analysis of the relevant legislative provisions.”
