Gove goes to Supreme Court

Michae Gove is preparing to take the Shoesmith decision to the Supreme ourt. This from DfE.

A DfE spokesman said: “The Government thinks that it was right in principle for Sharon Shoesmith to be removed from her post as Director of Children’s Services.

“The High Court thought that the decision was taken in a fair way. The Court of Appeal said today that they thought it was not sufficiently fair, and was therefore unlawful.

“There are questions of constitutional importance involved in this case, beyond the specific question about whether Ed Balls should have had a further meeting with Sharon Shoesmith before removing her.

“Our initial application to appeal has been turned down by the Court of Appeal. We intend to pursue an appeal to the Supreme Court."
