Sir Nicholas Wall President of the Family Division


 Children and families

Sir Nicholas Wall, who was initially rejected by the Justice Secretary, has been named President of the Family Division.   Under the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 the Lord Chancellor has a much reduced role in judicial appointments but he still has a final say on senior posts. So Straw can veto Wall ,although if he does, he must say why.Sir Nicholas can hardly have endeared himself to the Government.

In some areas it must be insisted that fundamental rights in the UK are very well protected by statutes which are enthusiastically enforced by the judiciary. Indeed in two areas at least, freedom from discrimination on grounds of sex or race, there is better protection than that provided by the ECHR. As both acts prohibit indirect discrimination, as well as direct, and both operate objective tests rather than intentionality tests, there is no problem in these areas for UK citizens as long as the statutes remain in force.”   http://en.wikipedia.org/wi​ki/Public_law

The British Association of Social Workers (BASW) has expressed astonishment at comments made by Lord Justice Wall who became the new President of the Family Division last week.   Read More>>>

    SIR NICHOLAS WALL – IS THE FAMILY JUSTICE SYSTEM IN NEED OF REVIEW?
    FAMILIES NEED FATHERS, COVENTRY, 19 SEPTEMBER 2010 http://www.judiciary.gov.uk/Resources/JCO/Documents/Speeches/pfd-speech-families-need-fathers-19092010.pdf

    UK Human Rights Blog – Sir Nicholas said that fathers are not disadvantaged by the current court system, arguing that “courts are not anti-father and pro mother. The courts recognise the important role which any non-resident should play in the lives of his children.” http://ukhumanrightsblog.com/2010/09/26/fathers-rights-on-the-agenda-for-upcoming-family-justice-reform/
