HC Deb 11 February 1987 vol 110 c234W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Attorney-General what efforts are being made to secure the return of Fernando Perez, a ward of court who was abducted from his school in Eastbourne on 10 October 1986 and taken by his father to the Canary Islands.

The Solicitor-General

I understand that Mrs. Perez's solicitors are applying for an order granting her care and control of the child and a declaration that his removal was unlawful. If Mrs. Perez obtains the order and declaration, an application for the return of the child may be made to the Spanish authorities on her behalf by the Lord Chancellor's Department under the Child Abduction and Custody Act 1985.
