Section 106: Effect of certain Northern Irish orders and provisions
260.Section 106 provides in subsection (1) for an adoption order or an interim adoption order made in Northern Ireland to have effect in England and Wales. Subsection (2) provides that a freeing order made in Northern Ireland, or the variation or revocation of such a freeing order be given the same effect in England or Wales as it has in Northern Ireland. Subsection (3) makes the same provision as section 105(3) in respect of the parallel provision in the Adoption (Northern Ireland) Order 1987 on restrictions on removal of a child where an adoption order is agreed or an applicant for adoption has provided a home (Articles 28 and 29 of the Adoption (Northern Ireland) Order 1987). Similarly subsection (4) allows for orders made under Article 30 of the Adoption (Northern Ireland) Order 1987 to return or not to remove a child to have effect in England and Wales as if they were orders of the High Court.
