This has the makings of a million personal tragedies – all designed by David Cameron and his Tories.
How many innocent families will have their children taken away from them while they fight false claims of abuse, under Cameron’s new ‘faster-track’ system?
How many of them will – like Karrissa Cox and Richard Carter – find there is no way to get their children back after they have won their case?
The adoption procedure is already too hasty.
One wonders why David Cameron needs to deprive so many people of their children so needlessly.
Prime Minister David Cameron wants to increase dramatically the number of children currently in care who move in with their adoptive families before the required legal work is completed.
Some 10% of adopted children are already placed with families early, according to his office.
But Mr Cameron wants these numbers to double as soon as possible.
Town hall bosses said it was also “vital” to address court delays and speed up legal proceedings.
The prime minister said too few councils were using early placement schemes and doubling the numbers would see 500 more children settled in new homes sooner.
