§ Mr. Rose
asked the Attorney-General what was the average period of time to elapse between sentence and the granting of leave to appeal in the 49 cases in 1964 where appeals against conviction were allowed after the appellant had served a period of the sentence of imprisonment imposed upon him by the trial court.
§ The Attorney-General
In 11 of the 47 cases no leave to appeal was necessary. In the remaining 38 cases the average period from sentence to grant of leave was 14 weeks.
