Is this code correct..IE will it product memory leaks?

STDMETHODIMP CUPS::get_m_strLastError(BSTR *pVal)

    // TODO: Add your implementation code here
    CString strError;

    strError="<font style='font-size:10pt;font-family:Verdana,Arial;'>";

    int iSize=strError.GetLength();
    char* str = strError.GetBuffer(iSize);
    unsigned short *newstr= NULL;
    int iWideSize=MultiByteToWideChar(CP_ACP,MB_PRECOMPOSED,str,-1,newstr,0);

    newstr = new unsigned short[iWideSize];


    delete (unsigned short*)newstr;
    return S_OK;

no your code will not lead to memory leak
but some additions:

// here you jave to use WCHAR
 newstr = new WCHAR[iWideSize]; //<<


   delete[] newstr; //<<<
