In a recent case where a father sought contact with his daughter, he wanted to rely on his various covert recordings of conversations that he had had with a social worker, a Cafcass officer and a solicitor.
The President of the Family Division, Sir James Munby, sitting in the Court of Appeal with King LJ, said that the recordings were relevant and admissible and it was a matter for the trial judge to decide what weight they should carry. He further added that “anyone seeking to rely on such material must…apply to the court for permission.’
