County courts had no jurisdiction to accept undertakings from the parent of a child who was the subject of an application for a supervision order made under section 31 of the Children Act 1989, ruled the court of appeal.

It dismissed an appeal by the guardian ad litem and a local authority from the decision of Judge Goldstone sitting in Watford county court on May 18, 1995, whereby he made a supervision order in respect of a child on certain undertakings given by the mother, The Times reports (Law Report, p31).
