Section 158 − Compulsory supervision order: suspension pending appeal

227.This section provides that the child, a relevant person or Safeguarder who appeals against a decision of the Children’s Hearing to make, vary, or continue a compulsory supervision order may also request the Principal Reporter to arrange a hearing to consider whether the decision should be suspended pending the determination of the appeal. Subsection (2) places the reporter under a duty to arrange a Children’s Hearing to consider the request for suspension as soon as practicable after the request is made. The duty only applies where the appeal is against a decision to make a compulsory supervision order and where the person making the appeal makes the request to the reporter.
