Homosexual adoption in Scotland

Probably this was in the SPUC news digest. Write some letters, people.
Here's the letter I found out about it from, published in your friendly local Edinburger rag:



The Scottish Executive has accepted in principle the recommendation that same sex couples (ie homosexual couples) should be allowed to adopt children, and a consultation paper has been issued inviting voters to register their objections by 31 October, 2005.

Few people, it seems, know about this proposal and even fewer about any consultation paper. Therefore, may I appeal for anybody with a view to write to R Girvan, Children and Young People's Group, 2C(S), Scottish Executive, Victoria Quay Edinburgh?
