Description:
This is the fifth and final report of the Children Act Advisory Committee and thus the end of a chapter in the history of the operation of the Children Act 1989. It is right not only to thank my colleagues on the Committee, the secretnriat and members of the local committees for their hard work over the last year, but also to acknowledge all those who have been participants at variolls levels during the five years since the Act was brought into force. Durmg the period covered by this report. the Committee has once again been substantially concerned with the issue of delay. n,is was the subject of a research study by Dame Margaret Booth, whose final report, Avoiding Delay in Children Act Cases, was published in July 1996. Progress on implementation of Dame Margaret's recommendations is described in chapter 2 of this report. The Children Act Advisory Committee was set up to monitor practice and procedure under the Act, and to report to Ministers on its implementation. The Committee was always intended to have a finite life. Now that it is coming to an end, it is particularly important for the work it has set in motion to be continued at local level by a strong network of Family Court Business Committees and Family Court Forums. I should like to emphasise the need for pro-active, committed chairmen and membe~s of these local committees. It is reassuring to know that their work will continue to be overseen by the new Advisory Board on Family Law. I know that the work of this Committee has been valued by everyone involved in Children Act proceedings. I am Sllre that the Lord Chancellor's Department and the Court Service, together with the Advisory Board, will continue to provide sources of support in the future.
