Section 95 - Duty of children’s hearing to prepare report for court

331.This section concerns the interaction between the children’s hearing and the court to which an application to make or vary a permanence order has been made. It provides that where there is a ‘live’ application for a permanence order in relation to a child, or for variation of such an order and where a children’s hearing proposes to make or modify a supervision requirement in respect of that child , the children’s hearing must prepare a report for the court to which application has been made. The report must contain such information as Scottish Ministers may prescribe in regulations (subsections (1) and (2)).

332.Subsection (3) makes clear that the reference to variation of a permanence order also includes a reference to amendment of the order to include authority for the child to whom the order relates to be adopted
