Children’s Bill welcomed by advocate

Filed under: Law & Courts — JohnPotter @ 12:21 pm Wed 10th November 2004

Children’s advocates are welcoming the new Care of Children Bill.

The Bill has been passed into law this afternoon [9th Nov], thanks to the Greens supporting Labour.

It gives gay partners parental rights, strengthens police powers and increases children’s rights.

Opponents say it negates the rights of parents, but Trish Grant from the Office of the Commissioner for Children says the new law is a great improvement.
