Where there were concurrent care and criminal proceedings relating to the same subject matter, it was essential that each court was kept fully informed of the other, and that the judge having the conduct of the care proceedings exercised his case management functions not only with a full knowledge of the situation in the criminal proceedings but with a view to ensuring that each hearing took place at an appropriate time.
