Contact: Recitals to orders & contact activities

A colleague has just returned from Wells Street where a District Judge commented in passing that there are those in the Ministry of Justice who are suggesting that a recital to an order which deals with contact might in fact be deemed to be a declaratory order of some kind for the purpose of enforcement / contact activities etc and that it might be treated just as though it were a section 8 order. Has anyone else run into this point?

Some resources on the contact activity provisions are to be found on the Cafcass website including the DCSF briefing, faqa and lists of approved contact activity providers.
