The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of the number of times a judge or magistrate has refused the admission of bad character or Hearsay evidence as a result of late service of the application or the evidence in support. To provide this information would require a manual search of files and incur a disproportionate cost.
