"the principal (monthly) periodical dealing with contemporary issues" Sir Mark Potter P
‘Accordingly, we need to focus on reforms in this area of the system in order to meet the unprecedented increases in demand. Any opportunities for primary legislation will need to support that aim.’This in a letter from the then Justice Minister, Dominic Raab MP, who held that office for just 4 months, which might not have afforded him the greatest length of time in which to reflect on the issue; but it is perhaps unfair to suggest a lack of adequate scrutiny when, over a period of 6 years, no less than six Lord Chancellors have come and gone. However, the suggestion that there is any current or foreseeable attempt to alleviate the pressure on the Family Court is surprising, given that the opportunities either do not exist or will not be sought. This in the face of repeated alerts (from no less than the President) that the care system is experiencing continued, increasing and unsustainable strain.
