August 2011
Valerie introduced the Adoption (Leave, Pay and Allowance Arrangements) Bil to Parliament
under the Ten Minute Rule procedure. Valerie identified 3 areas where there are inequalities
between the statutory entitlements for adoptive parents and the entitlements for parents whose
children were born to them: the eligibility for adoption leave; the different rates for the first 6
weeks of statutory maternity pay and statutory adoption pay; and maternity al owance, which is
available to self-employed mothers but not to self-employed adopters.

Valerie said: "I am bringing in this Bil because more needs to be done to support people who
do so much for society by adopting children who do not have families of their own. It cannot be
right that the people who come forward to give children a family life and offer them a stable and
secure environment are not currently entitled to the same support as other parents."

The Bill is listed for second reading on 20th January 2012.
