Abstract

In response to the widely publicised Miranda rules, judges in England have furtively moved in the opposite direction by the quiet and unobtrusive announcement of the new Judges’ Rules of 1964. The new strictures relax the rules prohibiting police questioning of a suspect after a certain stage in the interrogation process has been reached. The author concludes that the experiment of examination of the accused before a magistrate as soon as possible after arrest has long been advocated for by distinguished lawyers on both sides of the Atlantic, and it is high time that it was given a trial.
