Consultation Analysis, The Children’s Hearing (Scotland) Act 2011. Movement Restriction Conditions Regulations 2012, 21/03/13 [S

The Scottish Government has published  a summary of the responses received and an overview of the main findings in relation to the Scottish Government's consultation on Movement Restriction Conditions Regulations under the Children’s Hearing Act 2011.

The regulations are essentially a restatement of the Intensive Support and Monitoring (Scotland) Regulations 2008 (which will be repealed) and:

  • Set out the arrangements for compulsory supervision orders or interim compulsory supervision orders that contain a "movement restriction condition" , including the requirements for the preparation of a child's plan.
  • Separate, making clear, those conditions that must be imposed as part of an "movement restriction condition"  from those which may be imposed.
  • Provide that the child's plan must be recorded in writing but that this can be in electronic format.
  • Broaden the definition of 'relevant person' for the purposes of the regulations to include a person deemed to be a 'relevant person' in line with the 2011 Act.
  • Set out the duties of the implementation authority with regard to an "movement restriction condition" 
For full details see Consultation Analysis, The Children’s Hearing (Scotland) Act 2011. Movement Restriction Conditions Regulations 2012 which is available from the Scottish Government website.
