The Green Party is to make it own play on changes to the adoption laws.
MP Kevin Hague is today launching his own Private Member's Bill.
It would see a law change which would allow open adoption rules and pave the way for gay couples to adopt.
"The existing Adoption Act is from 1955 and it is very clearly, and I think accepted by everyone, to be no longer fit for purpose."
Open adoption would give adoptees greater scope to track their birth parents than they currently can.
