Chapter 5 Previous consistent statements

R9 We recommend repealing s 35(1) and (2) so that the admissibility of previous consistent statements is determined by the fundamental tests contained in ss 7 and 8, and deleting the “previous consistent statements rule” definition in s 4, and deleting references to s 35 and the previous consistent statements rule in s 25(4), s 27(3) and s 34(1).

R10 We recommend moving the substance of s 35(3) to s 90.
