Xenotransplantation (Hansard, 16 January 1997)
HC Deb 16 January 1997 vol 288 c330W
Mr. Waterson

To ask the Secretary of State for Health when the report of the advisory group on the ethics of xenotransplantation will be published. [11764]

Mr. Dorrell

"Animal Tissue into Humans", the report of the advisory group on the ethics of xenotransplantation, was published today. The Government response to the report was also published for a three-month consultation period. Copies of the report and response are available in the Library.

I also announce the establishment of the UK Xenotransplantation Interim Regulatory Authority which will regulate this area until a suitable opportunity for primary legislation arises. I am very pleased that Lord Habgood of Calverton has agreed to chair this interim authority.
