Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
Child safety orders are made under section 11 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. By virtue of section 11(6) of, and paragraph 68 of Schedule 8 to, the 1998 Act, proceedings for a child safety order are family proceedings for the purposes of the Children Act 1989.
This Order amends the Children (Allocation of Proceedings) Order 1991, which deals with the allocation and transfer between courts of family proceedings, so as to provide for the transfer of child safety order proceedings between magistrates' courts in accordance with the provisions of the 1991 Order.
