The two reform measures that will be described and analysed from this view point are the Approved Schools (Babies and Children’s Homes) Rules, 1991 (Statutory Instruments No. 13 & 14) and the Child Law Review Committee’s (CLRC) proposals concerning the reform of various laws concerning children as presented to government in its Report of March 1992.
