HC Deb 16 July 1923 vol 166 c1885W

asked the Home Secretary whether he has considered the Report on child adoption made by the Committee appointed to make such Report by the Home Office, and the two Bills which have been introduced to give effect to its recommendations; and if he can hold out any hopes of the Government bringing in or giving facilities to any Bill for this purpose?


Yes, Sir. I am afraid the Government cannot undertake to introduce legislation on this subject at the present time, and the pressure of Parliamentary business makes it impossible to give special facilities to a private Member's Bill.
