Section 44 – Obligations of local authority

46.This section applies where a child is removed to a place of safety provided by a local authority under a child protection order. It stipulates that in these circumstances the local authority has the same duties under section 17 of the 1995 Act toward the child as it would have if the child were a “looked after” child, subject to any conditions of the child protection order.
