Clarke outlines shared parenting law change


The government has confirmed it wants to change the law in England and Wales so that children whose mothers and fathers have split up can have better contact with the parent they do not live with.

Justice Secretary Ken Clarke told the Today programme that the changes would "put back confidence" in the system, but accepted that the law would have to be drafted very carefully.
