N refers to the Magistrate declining to hear an application for bail “after 4 days” Certainly in times past the defence would need to arrange for a bail request to be heard by ‘a judge in chambers’ (held in camera at a Crown Court). So, the Magistrate’s Court had made its decision and that could only be challenged at a higher court. Effectively an appeal against the initial decision.
