Adoption Debate, 09/11/11 [E/NI/S/W]

An debate on adoption in the UK took place in the House of Commons on 9 November 2011. The debate was opened by Jessica Lee (Cons).

She said:

"The recent figures on adoption levels in the UK should cause alarm bells to ring. In the past year, of the 3,660 children in care under the age of one year, only 60 were placed for adoption".
