61.Section 14 provides the conditions for the court to exercise its power to relax the automatic restrictions on publication of identification information or sensitive personal information (permitting publication of restricted adoption or parental order information is subject to different conditions provided for in section 15).

62.Subsection (2) requires the court to be satisfied of one or more of the matters listed in subsection (3) before it can permit the publication. The court is also required by subsection (4) to take account of any risk which publication would pose to the safety or welfare of any individual who is either involved in, referred to in or, more widely, connected with the proceedings. A person connected with the proceedings might be, for example, a relative of the child subject to care proceedings, who is not directly involved in the proceedings himself or herself but who frequently looks after the child.
