CF v MF and GF and another

Children's hearing – Proceedings before children's hearing – 'Relevant person'. Court of Session: In an appeal against a sheriff's decision quashing a pre-hearing panel's decision that a child's grandparents should no longer be deemed relevant persons and making an order deeming them to be relevant persons, the court concluded that the pre‑hearing panel's decision was one that was properly open to it and that it applied the statutory test correctly and did not take account of irrelevant factors or fail to take account of relevant factors: the court therefore remitted the case to the sheriff with a direction to refuse the grandparents' appeal.
