(Court of Appeal; Thorpe and Wall LJJ; 20 December 2007)

In a case in which a 14-year-old Norwegian child had apparently shifted from extreme reluctance to have any contact with the English father to a refusal to return to the Norwegian mother, separate representation of the child was appropriate. This was principally because a Norwegian clinical psychologist who had been seeing child for over 18 months in Norway was to travel to England to interview the child and report his conclusions, and the child needed to be able to see and comment on that report; this information had become available at the appeal and without it the court would not have interfered with the judges decision not to grant separate representation.
