Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill — Strong evidence required to use admix embryos — 4 Feb 2008 at 17:30

The majority of the House of Lords voted against putting in a precise statement what it would mean for a proposed use of embryos or human admixed embryos "to be necessary for the purposes of the research".[1]

The statement would have read:[2]

  • No licence under this paragraph is to be granted unless... there is cogent evidence, which must include published, peer-reviewed scientific data, that the research proposed on human or human admixed embryos is likely to achieve its specified purposes, and it is not reasonably practicable to achieve the specified purposes of the research without using human embryos or human admixed embryos.

When this debate was concluded, the Bill was sent to the House of Commons.[3]
