MP secures adoption debate in Westminster

EREWASH MP Jessica Lee has secured a debate in Parliament on the UK adoption rates.

It was due to take place on Wednesday morning in Westminster Hall as the Advertiser went to press.

Miss Lee said: “Last week marked National Adoption Week.

“In light of the recent figures on adoption rates, the Government’s review on the adoption process and the recent Norgrove Report into the family court system, I thought a debate in Parliament would be timely.”

Miss Lee worked as a family law barrister, specialising in child protection and adoption before being elected as MP for Erewash in May last year.
