Petition Call for Select Committee to investigate Misleading Allegations of Child Abuse & meanwhile suspension of change to Adoption & Family Court proceedings

More details

We call for a Parliamentary Select Committee to be established to investigate and report on the issue of False and Misleading Allegations of Child Abuse. 
We demand a suspension of any plans to limit Family Court time, or speed up Adoption procedures, until the Select Committee on False and Misleading Allegations of Child Abuse has completed it's investigations and it's recommendations have been fully implemented.
The current government proposals on Adoption targets & Family Court procedures are potentially dangerous as children could be adopted before loving parents have the time to prove their innocence.
There are particularily time consuming problems and processes in families where parent, child or sibling has a disability, including autism spectrum disorders & / or chronic medical or mental health difficulties.
