Section 85 - Contributions towards maintenance of looked after children

265.Section 85 introduces Schedule 1 which makes provision setting out the circumstances in which the local authority can seek contributions from adults towards the maintenance of a looked after child. The provision in Schedule 1 is, for the most part, a restatement of the provision in Part 3 of Schedule 2 to the Children Act 1989; however paragraph 1 of Schedule 1 prevents any contribution being sought from a person under the age of 18 (whether they are the child who is looked after or the parent or person with parental responsibility for such a child).
