Children - Care proceedings - Local authority care plan - Mother applying for permission to disclose papers to consultant psychiatrist for preliminary assessment - Justices refusing application - Correctness of decision.
Final care hearings were not to be approached on an 'all or nothing' basis. It was in some circumstances appropriate to consider issues, such as those arising in the instant case, at the final hearing. There was always a third option of requiring further information in cases where the justices were unwilling to sanction a final care plan and wished to explore the prospect of returning the child to the mother, but were unwilling to sacrifice the safety of the child.
