“(3A)    In giving directions under subsection (1) regarding the provision of
adoption support services, the Secretary of State must take steps to
ensure that decisions as to whether a particular child should be
placed for adoption with a particular prospective adopter are made
in such a way as to be blind to whether the adopter was approved
by the relevant local authority, an external local authority, a
regional adoption agency, or a voluntary adoption agency.”
