This Order brings into force on 28 October 2010 section 13 of the Children and Adoption Act 2006. Section 13 is already in force in relation to Wales in respect of fees that the National Assembly for Wales may charge for services in relation to intercountry adoptions to which regulations made under section 1 of the Adoption (Intercountry Aspects) Act 1999 ("the 1999 Act") apply. It inserts section 91A into the Adoption and Children Act 2002 ("the 2002 Act") enabling the Secretary of State to charge a fee to adopters and prospective adopters for services provided by him. Section 91A applies only in relation to intercountry adoptions to which section 83 of the 2002 Act (restriction on bringing children in), or regulations made under section 1 of the 1999 Act, apply.
