Human Fertilisation and Embryology (Mitochondrial Donation) Regulations 2015 — 3 Feb 2015 at 15:28

George Osborne MP, Tatton voted to allow mitochondrial donation in humans with the aim of enabling an individual to be born without inheriting mitochondrial disease from their mother.

The majority of MPs voted to allow mitochondrial donation in humans with the aim of enabling an individual to be born without inheriting mitochondrial disease from their mother.

The process of mitochondrial donation takes place in conjunction with the fertilisation of an egg by sperm outside of the body. A structure containing nuclear DNA from one egg cell or zygote is transferred to another. The result is an embryo containing DNA derived from three different individuals.

Under the regulations, and the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990, the process would be regulated by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority.

The motion supported by the majority of MPs taking part in this vote was:
