It is notoriously difficult to enforce contract orders between children and absent parents on a breakdown of the parents’ relationship where the party with whom the children live refuses to comply with Contact Orders imposed by a Court. The government has now published its draft Children (Contact) and Adoption Bill. One of the provisions suggested is that the Courts should be able to impose ‘contact activity directions’ and ‘contact activity conditions’ in Contact Orders. These may include information sessions, counselling or any other activities designed to establish, maintain or improve contact between child and parent. Courts will have new powers to enforce contact by imposing unpaid work or curfew Orders on those who breach them and where a parent suffers financial loss because of a breach of a Contract Order, the Court will be able to order compensation.

In 2006, legislation outlawing age discrimination will come into force. It will cover both employment and vocational training. It will cover both the private and public sectors and every other organisation. It will apply to both young and old members of the workforce.

Employers will have to adopt age positive practices. Employers will not longer be able to recruit, train, promote or retire people on the basis of age unless it can be objectively justified.
