After Adoption welcomes the provisions in Clauses 3,4 and 5 clarifying the duties of a local authority to provide a comprehensive adoption service to all parties as detailed in 3 (1), (a), (b), (c).

We also welcome this being extended to include other people i.e. siblings or other birth relatives in Clause 3(3).
