I would be grateful, because the Minister referred to financial inducements, which are already covered by article 4(c)(3) of the convention. To correct her slightly, we did not fully explore the issue of consent freely given to domestic adoption because

of the programming motion. It would be helpful if she provided a definition before we encounter the phrase again.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 84 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
