§ Ms Oona King
To ask the Solicitor-General if the Attorney-General will review the cases of children separated from their parents following evidence from Professor Sir Roy Meadow used in family court judgments. 
§ Mr. Lammy
[holding answer 16 December 2003]I have been asked to reply.
I refer my hon. Friend to the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Minister for Children on 23 February 2004, Official Report, columns 38–39, which sets out our plans for the review of cases. Further, on 25 February, a Local Authority Circular (2004 (5)) was issued to councils with social services responsibilities, setting out the steps that they should take. A copy of this circular has been placed in the House of Commons Library.
