The article presents the author's comments on the issues related to British Children Act 1989. He says that the act was apolitical and David Mellor, the minister who took the bill through the House of Commons, tried to keep the consensus by giving the opposition direct access to the official team. He says that the bill was not a response to child abuse scandal of Cleveland, England. He says that whether the act was inclined towards children or parents is a matter of individual judgment.
