Family Court to provide 'more security' for children

Changes to the family justice system will provide children with "more security", justice minister Simon Hughes has said.

Mr Hughes told the Today programme that the new 26-week time limit on care proceedings in court will lessen the amount of time children are left "in limbo" while cases are ongoing.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Tuesday 22 April.
