This Statutory Instrument has been made in consequence of a defect in SI 2007/774, which is revoked. This Order comes into force on 2 April 2007 and supersedes the previous version, correctly specifying the amendments to Schedules 2, 3 and 4 to the Children (Allocation of Proceedings) Order 1991 (SI 1991/1677).
The Order amends Schedule 2 to the 1991 Order, which allocates care centres to local justice areas grouped according to region, Schedule 3 to that Order, which lists the county courts that are designated as adoption centres and Schedule 4 to that Order, which lists the county courts that are designated as intercountry adoption centres. The amendments make Wrexham County Court a care centre, an adoption centre and an intercountry adoption centre. Accordingly, where an application under Parts III, IV or V of the Children Act 1989 is to be transferred from a magistrates court in the Wrexham Maelor or Montgomeryshire Local Justice Areas to a county court, it will be transferred to Wrexham county court.
The Order also makes Wales a separate Region and moves some of the entries from the Wales Region to the North West Region.
