For the purposes of protecting a girl or woman against the commission of a genital mutilation offence1 or protecting a girl or woman against whom any such offence has been committed, the court2 in England and Wales may make a female genital mutilation protection order3. In deciding whether to exercise its powers and, if so, in what manner, the court must have regard to all the circumstances, including the need to secure the health, safety and well-being of the girl to be protected4. The court may make such an order even without an application being made to it
