Clayton v Clayton

The prohibition on publication in s 97 of the Children Act 1989 ceased to have effect when the Children Act proceedings came to an end. However that did not mean that a judge might not, in the welfare interests of the child and in order to protect his or her privacy under Art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights 1950, make an injunction or an order prohibiting identification of the child, not simply to the extent set out in s 97(2), but for a period beyond the end of the proceedings.
