Taylor (Bonnett) v The Queen: [2013] UKPC 8;   [2013] WLR (D)  104

“Where a witness statement casting doubt on the veracity of the evidence given by the sole witness to a crime was not used at trial because of a failure by the prosecution to disclose it on time, or owing to incompetence of defence counsel, those failing were not enough without more to justify a finding that there had been a miscarriage of justice. The appellant had to show that, had the evidence been used, it might reasonably have affected the decision of the jury to convict.”
