“The Crown Prosecution Service, in deciding whether to use its statutory power to take over and discontinue a private prosecution on the ground that there was insufficient evidence, was entitled to apply the same test as that applicable to Crown prosecutors when conducting public prosecutions, namely that a prosecution should not be continued unless it was more likely than not that the defendant would be convicted.”
