The Minister said “I am delighted to be able to publish the Adoption (Information and Tracing) Bill 2016 today. Over the past year, work has been ongoing to draft this important legislation. This Government fully appreciates that the desire to know one's identity, or to re-establish contact, is fundamental and entirely reasonable.
