Regina v Cornwall County Council, Ex P L: QBD 25 Nov 1999

A local authority did not have the right to exclude solicitor representatives from child protection case conferences, and must provide minutes of any part of a meeting from which the parent is excluded. To do so would be to fail to follow the guidelines set out by the Secretary of State, which the authority was bound to follow.
