In re Z (A Child) (Foreign Surrogacy: Parental Order):  EWFC 73;  WLR (D) 375
‘Since section 54(1) of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 provided that in certain circumstances the court might make a parental order on the application of “two people”, it was not open to the court to make such an order on the application of one person only; nor could section 54(1) be “read down” in accordance with section 3(1) of the Human Rights Act 1998 to enable that to be done.’
WLR Daily, 7th September 2015
‘Sir James Munby, President of the Court of Protection, provided clear guidance as to the nature of the Court of Protection’s jurisdiction, and the approach that should be adopted when a care provider is unwilling to provide, or to fund, the care sought.’

“Although the court had a wide discretion to grant declaratory relief in diverse circumstances in both public and private law proceedings, where a party who was not a party to the contract brought private proceedings seeking declaratory relief to enforce a public authority’s planning obligation the court would not lend its assistance.”
