The revised version of the Children Act 1989, incorporating the effects of legislation enacted up to the end of 2002, and including those of the Adoption and Children Act 2002, was published on the internet when the statute law database was made available to the public in December 2006. The effects of legislation enacted in the years 2003 to 2006, including those of the Children Act 2006, are in the process of being applied to the database. It is expected that the Children Act 1989 will be republished with those effects incorporated by the end of August 2007.
