The Family Procedure Rules 2010 and Court of Protection Rules 2017 (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019
The Government has issued amendment regulations concerning and the impact that leaving the EU will have on the Court of Protection Rules.
The amendments will, in the MoJ's words
"remove provision in the FPR and COPR which relates to powers, processes and orders under EU instruments or international agreements which will no longer be applicable or available when those instruments or agreements are revoked by the Withdrawal Act or the statutory instruments made under it, or in some cases amend such provision where such instruments are retained in an amended form."
The accompanying Explanatory Memorandum provides a useful review of the interconnection between UK rules and EU instruments, though clearly it is still a developing picture.
UPDATE: 11 March 2019
These regulations passed the sift requirements on 5th March. Read the SI as load before Parliament on legislation.gov.uk.
The appellants were making applications relating to a breach of their human rights with regard to contact with the P. They argued that the judge's dismissal of the outstanding claims on their behalf for a declaration and damages in respect of alleged breaches of their human rights, was wrong in law, inadequately reasoned, and a perverse exercise of discretion. They also appealed against the judge's dismissal of their application to dismiss the P's RPR. Both applications were refused.
