SUPREME COURT STRIKES DOWN NAMED PERSON SCHEME

The named person scheme...

Undermines parents and permits the state unlimited access to pry into the privacy of families in their homes

Wastes limited resources on a bloated bureaucracy siphoning public money away from the protection of vulnerable children

Allows the use of intrusive powers to interfere in family life by scrapping the requirement to justify such intervention

Found by the UK Supreme Court to unlawfully breach European Convention right to respect for private and family life
