Research output: Contribution to journalArticleOtherpeer-review


This commentary considers the test laid down by the court regarding the proper procedure to be followed if a care order based on the child remaining at home is to be changed, and the circumstances in which a child could be removed pending such a change. The significance of Re B-S and the procedural requirements of Art 8 ECHR in such circumstances are considered, and the implications for future proceedings explored.
