1. the Adoption and Children Bill in General

Adoption and Children Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at on 21 November 2001.

Alert me about debates like this

The Society has long advocated the need for new legislation, which better reflects the needs of adoption today. Previous administrations, including the present one, have missed opportunities to place legislation before Parliament. We are broadly in agreement with the contents of the Bill, but we are concerned that there is as yet no timetable for its implementation. There needs to be a sense of urgency in this regard.
