Labour responds to National Adoption Strategy

Tulip Siddiq MPLabour’s Shadow Minister for Children and Early Years, responding to the publication of the Government’s National Adoption Strategy, said:

“The Conservatives have created a postcode lottery in adoption.

“This government has failed to ensure people from all backgrounds can easily adopt, and the result is hundreds fewer children in care are now being adopted.

“Labour would put children at the heart of our pandemic recovery. It’s time the Conservatives match our ambition for every child, including rebuilding children’s services and fixing the adoption system.”
