Lord Justice Thorpe:
"the final hearing in this matter be adjourned to be heard on 13 October at Cardiff, time estimate 5 days, reserved to Wood J."
So the principal outcome of the June hearing was to set the whole thing over once again for a span of months with an interim that was to be covered by interim care orders of all three children, some provision for an assessment of the mother's mental health, and provisions in paragraphs 5 and 7 for professional work in the interim to which I will return in greater detail.
"I believe I have correctly identified the legal framework and make clear findings of fact. I do not believe I have misdirected myself in law."
"The parties do jointly instruct Dr Holt to prepare a further report, the Guardian to be the lead solicitor. The parties do by 26th June agree a further letter of instruction to Dr Holt with a report to be filed and served by 11 September 2009."
