Human Reproductive Cloning Bill[Lords] — 29 Nov 2001 at 18:46

Mark Hoban MP, Fareham voted in the minority (Aye).

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

As the House will know, the other place passed the Bill without amendment on Monday.

I beg to move,

"That this House declines to give a Second Reading to the Human Reproductive Cloning Bill because it does not address the subject of therapeutic cloning; it does not prevent the creation of embryos by cell nuclear replacement; it does not define terms central to the Bill, such as 'fertilisation' and 'embryo'; and it fails to address the wider issues raised by the prospect of the creation of a cloned human being."

Question put, That the amendment be made:-

The House divided: Ayes 49, Noes 288.
