In Re J (A Minor) (Adoption: Freeing Order): FD 26 May 2000

The 1976 Act did not revoke any of the court’s inherent powers. A court could therefore revoke an order freeing a child for adoption under its own powers, and notwithstanding that no application in that behalf had been made by the mother. A change in the proposed care plan made it more appropriate for a child to continue to reside with foster parents without adoption.
