Prohibition From Identifying Children

Increase Transparency In The Family Courts

The Court of Appeal has decided that the prohibition from identifying children which section 97 of the Children Act 1989provides only applies whilst the proceedings relating to the child in question are in progress. Once the proceedings have concluded, the protection given by the Act comes to an end, the entitlement to anonymity thereafter being dependent upon an exercise in balancing the Convention rights of those involved.

Although statistics are published about cases that pass through the courts, these in their nature cannot answer claims that abuses of the system are not identified and that there are effectively no quality controls.
