Tom Little QC represents DPP in Court of Appeal in a Family case relating to the privilege against self-incrimination and disclosure to the Police and CPS

News | Wed 13th Apr, 2022

The Lord Chief Justice this morning handed down judgment in P (Children) (Disclosure)  [2022] EWCA Civ 495 in which the Court of Appeal (Civil Division) refused an appeal relating to an application made by a Father in private law proceedings. That application sought a pre-emptive and wide ranging prohibition on anything that he might admit being disclosed to the Police was rejected at first instance by Hayden J. It was therefore far more extensive than the ambit of section 98 of the Children Act 1989 which does not apply to private law proceedings. Tom Little QC was instructed by the DPP and made both written and oral submissions after the Court of Appeal had invited the DPP to intervene in the appeal. A copy of the judgment can be found here
