Justice for Families May 2008 Report

Full Report:

New clauses tabledTwo new clauses standing in the names of John Hemming, Nick Winterton, Martin Horwood, Dai Davies and Richard Taylor (clause 1 only) have been tabled to the Children and Young People Bill. Now is the time to lobby MPs and in particular members of the Bill Committee in support of these clauses. Details are on John Hemming's Weblog. This is very important as it can lead directly to a change in the law. I am emphasising the first one as it should not be at all contentious. The second one allows public scrutiny of the reasoning without identifying the people concerned. Getting MPs to support these is far far more important than any number of Early Day Motions.
Please write to your MP about supporting these clauses. The members of the Bill Committee have not yet been identified.
Council of Europe InvestigationThe Council of Europe investigation will now go to the Legal Affairs and Human Rights Committee of PACE (the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe) on 24th June at which a rapporteur will be appointed.House of Lords casePapers on a key case (the one involving the row with the Court of Appeal judges) have now been submitted to the House of Lords.
