Re B (Child)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division granted the mother leave to appeal out of time but dismissed her appeal against an adoption order. Although there might have been issues around the way in which the change of circumstances test under s 47 of the Children Act 1989 had been applied, the judge had not erred in the evaluative exercise involved at the second stage by refusing the mother leave to oppose adoption.
