Richard Page

Richard Page, a Christian magistrate, was disciplined by a Cabinet minister and England’s highest judge for saying that a child’s best interests lie in being raised by a mother and a father.

Richard, who has served as a magistrate in Kent for 15 years and is a well-respected member of the family court, expressed the view during a closed-door consultation with colleagues in a routine adoption case. Having heard all the evidence, Richard decided that his legal duty to act in the best interests of the child meant that he could not agree with placing the child with a same-sex couple.

Following an investigation by the local Justice of the Peace Advisory Panel, the case was referred to the Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice
