|John Hemming MP|
"A Bill to make provisions regarding arrangements for children involved in court cases; to make provision about the transparency, administration and accountability of courts and case conferences; to require the promotion of measures to assist families and such other persons as may be specified to reduce the cost of living through lower fuel bills; and for connected purposes."The objective of the bill "is to improve the quality of decision making relating to care matters and make the state more responsive to the welfare of children and families."
As John says on his Web Log, the version that goes to the second reading is likely to be different. Details of who to respond to and the deadline (which is 20th September) are in the bill.
