Summary: When considering whether to make an order for costs against a litigation friend who had acted for an unsuccessful child party, the general approach was that the litigation friend was expected to be liable for such costs as the relevant party, if they had been an adult, would normally have been required to pay. There was no general rule that a costs order could not be made against the child personally; in deciding whether to exercise its discretion as to costs, the court had to consider all the circumstances.
