Re M-D (a child)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The proceedings concerned a father's appeal against an order which prevented contact with his child until her eighteenth birthday and which stated requirements in order for the father to succeed in an application for permission to apply to the court for a further order. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the appeal to the limited extent that the word 'must', preceding the requirements as set out by the judge in order for the father to apply to the court, should be changed to 'should'.
