John Hemming MP – lack of transparency in the British family court system

The lack of transparency in British family court system is covering up a multitude of poor decisions, particularly those which rely on the reports of council-appointed psychologists – this is the belief of John Hemming Lib Dem MP and chair of the Families for Justice group.

I have seen many cases where the evidence provided is clearly wrong.

When parents are refused a ­second opinion, a bad report from a single psychologist who wishes to be on the good side of the local council, can result in the adoption of their children.

When the consequences are so serious we should not tolerate such unreliable evidence.

There needs to be an inquiry into the reports by psychologists to find if they are always failing parents in order to increase their income. Some psychologists do a really good job but others write what they are told by the local authority.

    • Well, we seem to be joined at the hip to the UK so that’s not so unlikely. Secrecy is the name of the game. Talking of which – do they also have D notices here? I believe you are not even supposed to mention them in the UK.
