LORD JUSTICE MCFARLANE:
'I am not going to make the care order in this case. I am not going to make a placement order. The high point you are going to get…the high point of the order you will get from me will be a supervision order to assist with the contact '.
It was at that stage that there was a short break afforded to the parties. They requested the judge to reconvene the case the following morning. By that time, the local authority had altered its course by accepting that the judge was going to sanction placement with the grandmother but argued that that should be under a full care order. Again, on the second day the judge indicated that he remained of the view that he had expressed on the first afternoon, namely that the most the local authority would get was a supervision order, but he was prepared to allow a short period of assessment in order to indicate whether this strong preliminary view that he had formed was to be converted into a full order.
LORD JUSTICE MOYLAN : I agree.
LADY JUSTICE THIRLWALL: I also agree.
