MPs want halt on Chinese adoptions

Socialist and ChristenUnie MPs on Tuesday called for an end to the adoption of Chinese babies by Dutch couples.

The move follows a tv programme claimed some children are being taken from parents by the Chinese authorities and put up for adoption by foreigners.
The MPs said adoptions should be halted pending further investigation.
