In Re P (Minor) (Residence Order: Child’s Welfare): CA 11 May 1999

Their religious views were relevant but not paramount, and a child might be raised in a different religion. A s91 order can properly be made without limit of time or for the period of the court’s jurisdiction over the child under s8.
