§ 20. Mr. MATHERS
asked the Lord Advocate the cost of obtaining ad adoption order under the provisions of the Adoption of Children (Scotland) Act; and, in view of the procedure in England, whether he will take steps to arrange for a similarly simple and inexpensive method to be adopted in Scotland?
§ Mr. JOHNSTON
I have been asked to reply. My right hon. Friend is making inquiry with a view to ascertaining what is likely to be the cost of an unopposed application for an Order under the Statute, and the comparative cost in England, and on obtaining the information he will communicate with my hon. Friend.
§ Mr. MATHERS
May I be allowed to put a further general question to the Lord Advocate in order that those who are interested in this matter may have the information as soon as possible?
