Section 64 - The special restrictions
232.This section makes provision for the special restrictions mentioned in section 62(3) of the Act. These restrictions are that the Scottish Ministers should take no further action in connection with bringing a child from outwith the British Islands into the United Kingdom who was adopted under the law of the relevant country, or is to be brought into the United Kingdom for the purposes of adoption.
233.Subsection (2), however, allows for action to be taken by the Scottish Ministers if the prospective adopter satisfies them that they should take this action despite the special restrictions.
234.Subsection (3) allows the Scottish Ministers to make regulations that provide for the procedure to be followed to determine whether further steps should be taken despite the special restrictions, and for matters which should be taken into account when making such a determination.
