CARE: Re X (Emergency Protection Orders) [2006] EWHC 510 (Fam)
Date:5 APR 2006

(Family Division; McFarlane J, 16 March 2006), [2006] The Times, April 21

The court provided guidance concerning the making of emergency protection orders. An application without notice for such an order might need to become an inter partes hearing; justices should give consideration to this, and reasons for the decision reached. Evidence must come from the best available source and proceedings and reasons must be fully recorded and given to parents.
