HC Deb 04 February 1938 vol 331 c553W
Sir A. Wilson

asked the Home Secretary whether and, if so, when he proposes to introduce legislation to give effect to the recommendations of the Committee on Adoption of Children (Cmd. 5409)?

Sir S. Hoare

Consultations are in progress with appropriate representative bodies in regard to the recommendations of this committee. When these consultations have been completed due consideration will be given to the question of the introduction of legislation, but I cannot at the present stage give any undertaking on this point.
