The Child Maltreatment Bill, which was drafted to create provisions for the emotional and physical welfare of children (a rather opaque definition by anyone’s standards), appears to be on the verge of collapse.
The Bill was due to be moved for debate on 28th February, but this in fact did not happen. Parliament’s website tells us that there is no indication as to when this Bill might progress further.
It’s not a Bill we back; we happen to think it’s lacking and dangerously thin on detail, so you’ll perhaps forgive us for breathing a sigh of relief, for now.

Mr. Llwyd has no concern or it seems any understanding of how this can be used in the family courts to stop even more fathers from being able to maintain a relationship with their children after separation or divorce & to take children away from their parents so they can be adopted for profit.
