(Court of Protection; Peter Jackson J; 9 June 2011)
A vulnerable adult was autistic and had a severe learning disability. He was living with his father but was placed in respite care with his father's consent for a few days. A disagreement between the father and the local authority led to the authority retaining the adult in a home for a year.
If a local authority sought to regulate, control etc it must point to specific statutory authority or else obtain the appropriate sanction of the court.
The Red Book is the acknowledged authority on practice and procedure
