§ Mr. Galley
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish a consultation document on the issues on which the Warnock committee considered legislation was necessary or desirable.
§ Mr. Newton
The Government have published today a consultation document "Legislation on Human Infertility Services and Embryo Research" (Cmnd. 46) which is being sent to interested bodies for comment. The views of individuals and other organisations will also be welcome—particularly on the issues highlighted in the document which have not, so far, been much debated in public. The comments and views received will assist the preparation of legislation for introduction in the next Parliament. I hope that those who are interested in these important and sensitive issues will make full use of this opportunity to let us have their views. Comments should reach us by 30 June next year.
