It provided that the basic reason for including a consent requirement is that otherwise there would be a risk of prosecutions being brought in inappropriate circumstances and identified five broader overlapping reasons for including a consent requirement.</p><p>It is a constitutional principle that, when deciding whether to consent to a prosecution, the Law Officers will consider all relevant facts including why it is proposed to bring the prosecution and the mischief which the proposed offence was intended to prevent and apply the well-established prosecution principles of evidential sufficiency and the public interest test.</p> more like this
