Disclosure of expert’s name and report ordered to further “informed debate”

The then President of the Family Division ordered the disclosure of an expert’s report, prepared for the purpose of care proceedings, because it would contribute to an informed debate about the Family Justice System. Importantly, he also advocated such disclosure to become routine practice going forward. ~ Sir Nicholas Wall  

The President, Wall LJ, did not grant Dr M anonymity and ordered that his report (anonymised to protect the family) may also be published.

The legal principles:

  • The President approved and adopted the reasoning of Munby J (as he then was) in BBC v CAFCASS Legal [2007] EWHC 616 (Fam) and A v Ward [2010] EWHC 16 (Fam), decisions which also considered the question of what should be permitted to be reported about child care proceedings which had been dismissed (para 29).
