“The Court of Appeal gave guidance as to the practice to be adopted where there was concern about the adequacy of a trial judge’s reasoning, when adjourning, part heard, an appeal by the mother of two children, A and L, against the decision of Judge Compston, sitting as a judge of the Family Division on 27 May 2011, as to the adequacy of his judgment on a fact finding hearing in ongoing care proceedings relating to the children, and inviting the judge to provide such further reasons on particular matters as he might think appropriate by way of elucidation, clarification, elaboration or otherwise of his judgment.”
