Breaking Contact Orders

In England & Wales the long awaited new measures to deal with the non compliance of child contact introduced by the Children and Adoption Act 2006 are to come into force in November according to today's article in the Guardian. Measures include contact activity 'directions' to attend activities such as programmes, classes and counselling or guidance sessions that help promote contact or address violent behaviour; orders to carry out unpaid work; and compensation for financial loss.

On Thursday 11 September there's a debate in the Scottish Parliament on Family Law, which includes the issue of the enforcement of contact orders. It's a motion by Nigel Don MSP and it happens at 17:00.

Thanks for that. I'll try and make it. Thursdays at the Scottish Parliament are becoming a regular date - I was there last week.
