X,Y & Z v A Local Authority [2011] EWHC 1157


Application by a freelance journalist, supported by the children’s mother, for permission to disclose the name of a medical expert in care proceedings. Application granted. The President considered what in the future should be the practice on questions of anonymity of experts and publications of their reports. 

The case concerns 3 children, X a boy aged 13, Y a girl aged 10 and Z a boy aged 8. The background was care proceedings instituted by Coventry City Council. In advancing a case of factitious or induced illness the local authority appeared to place reliance on the report of a paediatrician, Dr M. The trial concluded with the judge giving the local authority permission to withdraw proceedings and ordered it to pay £100,000 towards the publicly funded costs of the parents. During the course of the trial, Dr M (who was not called to give evidence) was heavily criticised by the trial judge. 

After the hearing, an application was made by a freelance journalist, Mr Morgan (supported by the children's mother) to indentify Dr M. The principal issue was whether or not Dr M's identity ought to be revealed. Dr M left the question of identification to the court- he neither supported or opposed the application. 

In giving judgment, the President, Sir Nicholas Wall refined the issues thus: if the Administration of Justice Act 1960, section 12 does not, of itself, prevent the identification of Dr M, 2 questions arise: 

(i) whether the "restraint jurisdiction" should be exercised to protect him; and 
(ii) if not, should the "disclosure" jurisdiction be exercised to order publication of the report.
