Main content

Follow this EDM by:


That this House notes the report of the Family Justice Review with sadness; recognises that a report written by a panel dominated by the family justice establishment was unlikely to challenge the status quo; regrets that proposals in the report, such as trusting local authority social workers' assessments more, are likely to lead to more miscarriages of justice; further notes that nothing practical has been offered for grandparents or those parentswho lose contact with their children; believes that the proposals fail those children and parents who get a bad deal from the system; and calls for the report to be scrapped and a new review established with a balance on the review between those people who make a living from the system and those people who use the system.
