The Adoption Agencies (Scotland) Regulations 2009: Scottish Government Response to Consultation

Consultation report on the Adoption Agencies (Scotland) Regulations

Regulation 5 - Appointment of medical and legal advisers

Question 5: Do you agree with the approach in Regulation 5?

The only point of concern here was in relation to the qualifications of the legal adviser as there is a broader group of solicitors who are "admitted" than those who are qualified to practice. It was felt that the requirements set out in the 1996 Regulations should be replicated.

Scottish Government response/action

The Regulation has been amended to reflect the requirement in the 1996 Regulations.
