LOCAL AUTHORITY: A and S v Enfield London Borough Council [2008] EWHC 1886 (Admin)

31 JUL 2008

(Queen's Bench Division, Administrative Court; Blair J; 31 July 2008)

Although the child had been removed from the Child Protection Register after only 6 months, the decision to place him on the register by reason of neglect had not been an unreasonable one. The child had been severely malnourished and his weight was perilously low; there had been sufficient material before Child Protection Conference to justify the decision reached, in particular parental failure to keep appointments. Although not spelled out expressly, the Child Protection Conference had applied the correct test and had clearly had in mind the relevant question guidelines. In this case the complaints procedure should have been followed, rather than judicial review proceedings.
