“Where the counts in an indictment referred to offences contrary to a specific statutory provision but the particulars referred to acts which would be contrary to a different statutory provision, findings of a jury could not be upheld on the basis that the requirements of section 4A(2)(b) of the Criminal Procedure (Insanity) Act 1964 were met, or that the defects could be cured by application of section 3 of the Criminal Appeal Act 1968.”
