CARE PROCEEDINGS: Re G (Care Proceedings: Placement for Adoption) [2005] EWCA Civ 896

(Court of Appeal; Ward, Keene and Longmore LJJ; 14 July 2005)[2006] 1 FLR 47

The clarity of the judge's reasoning in this case was insufficient given the importance of the issue to be determined, which was for the child to be removed permanently. The judge's main conclusion, that the grandparents' poor parenting made them an unacceptable risk as carers, was inconsistent with his finding that he could not decide whether their care of their own children had fallen below an acceptable standard. Therefore, the central findings on which his conclusions had been based had been undermined. See October [2005] Fam Law 770 for the case report and comment.
