Lord Walton of Detchant

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, in view of growing anxiety among patients and clinics relating to the impending expiry in July 1996 of the current statutory five-year storage limit for frozen embryos and in the light of the advice they have received from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, they are considering modifying the current regulations.

Baroness Cumberlege

We are considering the authority's advice and will make an announcement shortly.
