If the rule meant 14 days surely it would say so. As soon as practicable may require longer. That will depend on the circumstances of the case.

served as soon as practical which I believe means within 14 days.

No. The rule is phrased to reflect the reality that documents are very often served late in criminal proceedings.

Mine is not a legal perspective, but if there is a good reason for a delay in serving documents, and it would not be in the interests of justice to proceed, then that is normally a good case for an adjournment.

So I'm not too sure that allowing the evidence to be inadmissible is an automatic outcome.

There is no 'firm', there is only a severely underfunded and creaking system.

One aspect of that underfunding is that when a court takes only two weeks to process paperwork, it is a quick turnaround.

Quite the opposite of firm, in fact. Infirm and shaky.
