HC Deb 25 January 1971 vol 810 c36W
Mrs. Knight

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when it is intended to lay the first Order under Section 4 of the Adoption Act, 1968, concerning the recognition of overseas adoption orders.

Mr. Carlisle

The adoption laws of some 100 countries and states likely to be covered by the first order have been obtained and are being examined. My right hon. Friend hopes to lay this Order by early summer.
