§ 19. Sir J. Lucas
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make exceptions in approved cases so as to enable a British couple to adopt an orphan child of one of our former Allies.
§ Mr. Ede
I have no power to make exceptions from the provision in the Adoption Act, 1926, excluding any infant who is not a British subject, but when there is an opportunity of amending legislation I will consider whether it is necessary to retain or modify this limitation.
