Court of Protection Practice and Procedure Conference 2016

A comprehensive guide to best practice and current thinking

30 MAY 2010

Publication of Information: Children Schools and Families Act 2010

LUCY REED, Barrister, St John's Chambers, Bristol

The Children Schools and Families Act 2010 made its way through ‘wash up' and received Royal Assent on 8 April 2010. Amongst other matters (not dealt with here) it makes substantial and controversial changes to the law concerning the publication of material relating to family proceedings which are summarised below. There will be repeals and amendments of a number of pieces of primary legislation, in particular s 12 of the Administration of Justice Act 1960, s 97 of the Children Act 1989 and s 39 of the Children and Young Persons Act 1933. The relevant provisions are contained in Part II of the Act and they apply to all relevant family proceedings at which the public are/were not entitled to be present. Broadly, divorce, civil partnership and financial matters are not ‘relevant family proceedings'.
