HC Deb 15 February 1968 vol 758 c400W
66. Mr. Jennings

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress has been made in his inquiries into the working of the laws affecting the adoption of children.

Mr. Callaghan:

The statistical survey by the Home Office Research Unit and the Government Social Survey of the operation of the Adoption Act, 1958, is well advanced. The Home Office has already received a number of memoranda in response to its request to the voluntary adoption societies and the local authorities for information on the working of the adoption law, and others are expected soon.
