Chapter 6

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

Alert me about debates like this

80.6 Any regulation that would require children brought into the UK to be reviewed/monitored by the Agency who had approved the adopters would have serious financial implications for voluntary agencies. Who would pay for this monitoring role (until the adoption order is made)? If this became a requirement through regulation, it might have the consequence of voluntary agencies withdrawing from inter-country assessment.
