Re Wand B; Re W (Care Plan) and Re S (Minors) (Care Order: Implementation of Care Plan); Re W (Minors) (Care Order: Adequacy of Care Plan) - A Note on the Judgment from the Perspective of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms 1950
Child and Family Law Quarterly, Vol. 14, No. 4, pp. 447-460, 2002
The House of Lords held that the Children Act 1989 did not permit a court making a care order to oversee the manner in which it was implemented and this was not incompatible with the Human Rights Act 1998. Key ECHR issues including the positive obligations of the state, the meaning of 'determination' and the execution of judgments were not considered.
