  • Wales Sex Education

    Public Child Protection Wales

    A judicial review of the Welsh Government’s decision to roll out compulsory relationship and sex education (RSE) across the whole school in Wales will be heard before the new academic year, following an application by Public Child Protection Wales.

    The group of 5,000 parents and grandparents say mandatory teaching would mean the introduction to very young children of sensitive and inappropriate topics such as gender ideology, and that parents will be denied their time-honoured right to remove their child from sex education. The case will be heard at the High Court in Cardiff.

  • No-fault divorce

    The Law Society

    More than 12,000 new divorce applications have been filed since the new no-fault divorce laws came into effect in April this year. According to official statistics, 12,978 new applications were made in April 2022, of which 10,207 were applications by one spouse.

    Under the new legislation, the parties can now make a joint application for divorce if they agree, and 2,771 joint applications were made this April. In April 2021, there were 6,764 digital divorce applications; however, an uptick in divorce applications was expected after the new laws came into force because the requirement to show fault on the part of one party was removed.
