Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill — Human-animal hybrid licenses — 19 May 2008 at 18:30

The majority of MPs voted to make it possible to grant licenses for the creation of human-animal hybrid embryos.

The clause under discussion would insert the words:[2]

  • No person shall
  • mix human gametes with animal gametes,
  • bring about the creation of a human admixed embryo, or
  • keep or use a human admixed embryo,
  • except in pursuance of a licence.

into the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990.[3]

The vote in Parliament was to over deleting the phrase, "except in pursuance of a license".
