(Court of Appeal; Sir Anthony Clarke MR, Auld and Thorpe LJJ; 26 October 2006)

An expert witness was not immune from disciplinary, regulatory or fitness to practice proceedings in relation to statements made or evidence given by him in or for the purpose of legal proceedings. If the conduct or evidence of an expert witness at or in connection with a trial, whether civil or criminal, raised the question whether that expert was fit to practice in his particular field, the regulatory authorities should be entitled (and might be bound) to investigate the matter for the protection of the public. The trial judge or Court of Appeal should not be the sole arbiter of the question who should be immune and who should not.
