HL Deb 12 November 2001 vol 628 c57WA
Lord Alton of Liverpool

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What plans they have to follow the example of the United States National Institutes of Health in collecting centrally information about the import and use of stem cells. [HL1129]

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath

The Government have no plans at present to collect information on the importation and use of stem cells, although we continue to monitor developments in this field of research. Stem cell research is being examined currently by anad hoc Select Committee of the House of Lords and the Government will consider its recommendations when they are published.
