RIP Child Protection

The mainstream press has belatedly picked up on the news that the cost to councils of issuing care proceedings is to rise from £125 to £4,000. A shame they couldn’t have done so when the government might still have been persuaded against it, rather than two days before the new rules come into effect, but that’s life.

I wonder how much longer the government can maintain the fiction that it is committed to child protection.
