A Local Authority v A

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. It was necessary and proportionate that the youngest of six children be placed for adoption and the statutory test for dispensing with parental consent was clearly met, as the child's welfare throughout his life could only be achieved by the local authority's plan. With respect to the five older children, the Family Court approved an agreement that they should stay in foster care where they had been since December 2016 in the best interests of those children.
