Alex Verdan QC in the Supreme Court

25th February 2013

Alex Verdan QC is appearing in the Supreme Court today in the case of Re B.  The issues are whether a child of two years of age should be permanently removed from her parents and placed for adoption. In that regard, whether the child was likely to suffer significant harm within the meaning of s.31(2)(a) of the Children Act 1989, and whether her permanent removal was a proportionate response to any such risk that she did face.
