*Re R (A child)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The mother appealed against a care order in respect of her daughter, granted under s 21 of the Adoption and Children Act 2002, authorising the local authority to place her for adoption. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appeal, held that it was difficult to consider that any other conclusion had been open to the judge on the evidence.
