Family and Divorce partner Caroline McNally makes a deputation at LegCo to the Panel on Welfare Services in respect of the proposed legislation to implement the Law Reform Commission Report on Child Custody and Access.

Caroline McNally made one of 17 deputations to the Panel on Welfare Services headed by Mr Matthew Cheung, GBS, JP Secretary for Labour and Welfare.  As Secretary of the Hong Kong Family Law Association, Caroline McNally confirmed that the association would be making a written submission during the public consultation period which runs until 25 March 2016.  Mr Cheung came under pressure from single parent organisations and women’s groups to provide further details of the Government’s proposals to build the ancillary services and to put proper foundations in place before the law is changed.
