Written answers (Question to Children)

I can advise the Deputy that I am not in a position to comment on matters which are subject to court decisions. Parental capacity assessments are requested by the courts to assist their decision making. Matters relating to the operation of the courts are more appropriate to my colleague, the Minister for Justice and Equality.
