This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1)This section applies where, on determining the review of a compulsory supervision order under section 138(3), it appears to the children’s hearing that the implementation authority is in breach of a duty in relation to the child imposed on the authority under section 144 or 145.

(2)The children’s hearing may direct the National Convener to give the authority notice in accordance with subsection (3) of an intended application by the National Convener to enforce the authority’s duty.

(3)The notice must—

(a)set out the respects in which the authority is in breach of its duty in relation to the child, and

(b)state that if the authority does not perform that duty before the expiry of the period of 21 days beginning with the day on which the notice is given, the National Convener, on the direction of the children’s hearing, is to make an application to enforce the authority’s duty.

(4)The National Convener must, at the same time as giving the notice, send a copy of the notice to—

(a)the child,

(b)each relevant person in relation to the child.

(5)If a children’s hearing gives a direction under subsection (2), the children’s hearing must require that a further review of the compulsory supervision order take place on or as soon as is reasonably practicable after the expiry of the period of 28 days beginning on the day on which the notice is given.

(6)If, on that further review, it appears to the children’s hearing carrying out the further review that the authority continues to be in breach of its duty, the children’s hearing may direct the National Convener to make an application under section 147.

(7)In determining whether to direct the National Convener to make an application under section 147 to enforce the authority’s duty, the children’s hearing must not take into account any factor relating to the adequacy of the means available to the authority to enable it to comply with the duty.
