Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Adoption Acts.

112.

asked the Minister for Justice if, in view of the circumstances of a recent case (details supplied) it is proposed to introduce legislation to amend the Adoption Acts.

113.

asked the Minister for Justice if any changes in the Adoption Acts are contemplated; and, if so, the nature of such changes.

With your permission, a Cheann Comhairle, I propose to take Questions Nos. 112 and 113 together.

A Private Member's Bill to amend the Adoption Acts is at present before the Seanad and I consider that it would be inappropriate for me to anticipate the discussion on the subject that will take place when the Bill comes to be debated.
