HC Deb 08 January 2002 vol 377 c618W
Mr. Amess

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what techniques are available to distinguish between a blastocyst stage cloned human embryo and a blastocyst stage embryo created by fertilisation in(a) the petri dish, (b) the cryopresentation facility and (c) the womb of a woman. [19753]

Ms Blears
