Re M-H (a child) (placement order: correct test to dispense with consent)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. A placement order had been made in respect of a six year old child, the court having dispensed with the mother's consent. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the mother's appeal as the judge had not applied the wrong test in having dispensed with her consent, nor had the judge failed to adequately analyse the expert evidence that had been before her.
