Cafcass And Private Family Law

EDM number 291 in 2007-08, proposed by Dai Davies on 15/11/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Children's social services, Civil law, Courts and Family law.

That this House is concerned that under the existing operating conditions of the Children and Family Court Advisory Support Service there is little or no opportunity for defendants to question evidence presented at court, the exercise of the right of appeal is made extremely difficult and the process under private family law is not open and transparent; and calls on Her Majesty's Government to do all that it can to ensure justice is done and individuals are treated as innocent until proven guilty within this closed court system as they are in all other United Kingdom courts.

This motion has been signed by a total of 36 MPs.
