Justice Minister, Simon Hughes, has announced that children aged 10 and older will have an opportunity for their views and feelings to be heard by a judge in proceedings that concern them.

No detail of how this will work in practise has been announced except that this initiative is to be implemented as soon as practically possible.

At the same time arrangements will be made in appropriate cases for children to be heard by a mediator.
