The House of Commons has launched a website inviting comments from members of the public on the recently published Children and Families Bill.
The site notes the basic changes that would be introduced by the bill, including changes designed to speed up adoption and simplify cases involving children. It would introduce a presumption in favour of shared parenting for separated and divorced couples, as well as a 26 week timetable for care and supervision orders.
Visitors to the site are invited to comment on either the whole draft bill or specific sections, with the site noting:
“MPs are particularly interested in your comments on the practical implications of specific clauses of the Bill.”
The site has attracted 20 detailed comments to date.
