Provision is made for Form C110 to have attached to it such of the documents specified in the Annex to that form as are available to ensure proceedings are not delayed by reason of a missing document.
A new rule 14A is inserted into the 1991 Rules and provides for the court to set the timetable for proceedings for a care order or supervision order in accordance with the Timetable for the Child as defined in that rule.
Rule 4 has been inserted to clarify the fact that a single justice can exercise the powers of the court in rule 16A(1)(g) to permit a Mckenzie friend and any other person to be present a directions appointment or hearing which that justice is conducting. Rule 8 makes similar provision in relation to a justices' clerk.
