In Vitro Fertilisation

Question for Department of Health

UIN HL5362, tabled on 3 March 2015

To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Earl Howe on 24 February (HL4892), whether they have identified any other speculative accounts in the media of the likely timetable for the first mitochondrial donation cycle, based on the research shared on a confidential basis with the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) Expert Panel; and what steps they and the HFEA have taken in order to ensure that the general public are properly informed of the speculative nature of such accounts.

I have nothing to add to the written answer given to my noble friend, Lord McColl of Dulwich on 24 February 2015 (HL4892).
