Department of health statistics released on Friday revealed that

the number of children being adopted has fallen dramatically over the last four years.

The Daily Mail (June 5, p2) reported that fewer children are finding

permanent new families despite pressure from government for more adoptions.

In the same period (March 1994 to March 1998), according to department of health statistics, the number of children being looked after by local authorities increased by 4,000 to 53,300 - an eight per cent rise.
