Family Law

The leading authority on all aspects of family law

17 JUN 2008

LOCAL AUTHORITY: R (L) v Merton London Borough Council [2008]

(Queen's Bench Division; Irwin J; 12 June 2008)

The Arrangements for Placement of Children (General) Regulations 1991 (SI 1991/890) did not impose a maximum of 120 days of respite care in any 12-month period, although guidance from the Department of Health had led many local authorities to believe that this was the maximum. The Regulations in fact provided that a series of short-term placements at the same place, whose total duration did not exceed 120 days, might be treated as a single placement, a measure designed to reduce the administrative burden on local authorities.
