In 1994 the Home Secretary made a reference to the Law Commission in the following terms: "to consider the law of England and Wales relating to heresay evidence and evidence of previous misconduct in criminal proceedings; and to make appropriate recommendations, including, if they appear to be necessary in consequence of changes proposed to the law of evidence, changes to the trial process". This paper addresses this reference in three main sections: an account of the present law on the admissibility of bad character evidence; an attempt to identify the principles on which the law in this area should be based; and an examination of a number of options for reform, some of which are provisionally proposed.
