This question was to Weldon at the Executive Meeting 8th September 2008

Main question – “Adoption & Children’s Act 2002. Under this statutory act you can request an assessment of your adoption needs. Does this Local Authority following a request for an assessment have a time frame in which an assessment is done and then concluded?”

Supplementary question – “Who has the legal duty in this Local Authority to perform this assessment, and if this is not done, then who is responsible to enforce what is passed in law..”

I don’t know if he ever got a reply from Weldon. I shall ask.
