Regina (Raeside) v Luton Crown Court [2012] WLR (D) 120

“The purpose of a custody time limit would be undermined if the court granted an extension under section 22(3) of the Prosecution of Offences Act 1985 in anything other than exceptional circumstances, and in the absence of the express consent of the defendant to the extension of that limit, the court must direct that an immediate application is made by the Crown and rigorously scrutinise the evidence to see if it is satisfied that there is good and sufficient cause.”
