Abstract

In R v. Sharp [1988] 1 WLR 7 HL, in a speech with which the rest of the House of Lords agreed, Lord Havers said (at p. 11):

‘I accept the definition of the hearsay rule in Cross on Evidence, 6th ed. (1985), p. 38: “an assertion other than one made by a person while giving oral evidence in the proceedings is inadmissible as evidence of any fact asserted.”’
