Child - Care - Family proceedings - Appeal - Assessment of mother's parental skills ordered - Whether grounds for appeal.
On an appeal against a consensual order made by a district judge and an undertaking given by one of the parties, the court held that on the face of the order, the arrangement had been arrived at by consensus and the parties had been present and represented. However, even if the court were satisfied that there had been an irregularity at that hearing, an assessment of the mother's parental skills would still need to be carried out in order to determine the long term best interests of the child.
