The Committee on Petitions organised a Fact-finding visit to London on 5 - 6 November 2015. The aim of the visit was to meet authorities, practitioners (lawyers, social workers) and other stakeholders to exchange views on the petitions related to interventions by the UK authorities on issues of parental responsibility and allegedly abusive decisions on adoption as well as the placing of children in foster care without the consent of biological parents.
