I was just thinking then of the case of “L” that Nadine Finch referred to when she gave evidence to the Committee. She had represented the Children’s Commissioner, who got involved because of her particular interest in that case. Would the clause prevent the anti-slavery commissioner from ever being able to exercise that right of being joined to a case where they might have an interest of policy? Does it preclude that altogether, whereas the Children’s Commissioner has that option?
