As the debate surrounding the many different facets of the Children and Families Bill gets underway, the Justice Committee has today just published its report on the proposals that have been made in relation to just what should go into the Bill and how it might work.
You can check out what the Committee’s response was to the government’s proposals and the concerns they express, most significantly in relation to private law issues including shared parenting legislation, which we’ve debated with interest on the blog recently and the potential changes to contact and residence orders.
The link above has all sorts of other very interesting content; including the Justice Committee’s Report (Report Number Four), a tracker page for the Bill and up to date news on the Justice Committee.
This Bill will continue to bristle with tensions and conflict. We’ll be very interested to see how this develops.
And yes, yes we are supposed to be on holiday. But we can’t help it. We love it. Damn it.
