18.Part 3 contains a range of provisions, some of which apply to both adoption orders and permanence orders, including a requirement to notify the father of a child where that father has never had parental responsibilities and parental rights that an application for either type of order is to be made. This Part also contains section 107, a provision which amends section 11 of the 1995 Act to allow people who have lost parental responsibilities and parental rights as the result of the making of an adoption order to make an application under that section for a contact order in respect of the child that has been adopted. In terms of section 110, the Scottish Ministers have power to make regulations to provide for allowances to be paid by local authorities in respect of certain children.
