Members will be pleased to know that I have only one or two sentences to say about amendment 151. The amendment provides that references to enactments in section 1 of the Adoption (Intercountry Aspects) Act 1999 include acts of the Scottish Parliament. That is necessary so that regulations that give effect to adoptions under the Hague convention can apply provisions of the bill to such adoptions. I would be grateful if nobody questioned me on that.

I move amendment 151.

Amendment 151 agreed to.

Amendments 75 to 79 moved—[Robert Brown]—and agreed to.
