Mr. Peter Bruinvels
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what recent information he has collected on the operation of surrogacy arrangement agencies in the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Newton
The operation of commercial surrogacy agencies is prohibited under the Surrogacy Arrangements Act 1985. We have received no information indicating there have been any possible breaches of the Act since the reply I gave to my hon. Friend on 15 January at column300.
