The Warnock Recommendations: Mr Powell and His Fellow Opponents Renew Their Campaign
Lancet. 1985 Jul 20; 2(8447): 166-167.
Government Ministers in Great Britain have underestimated the strength of opposition to any experimentation on early human embryos and to a proposed nongovernmental regulatory body to oversee such research. As a tactic to salvage planned legislation, the Government has delayed the introduction of its bill on these matters, probably until autumn 1986. This delay is considered to be another miscalculation by officials, since Enoch Powell and his supporters have announced a nationwide campaign to achieve an end to human embryo research. Opponents of this research will also try again, using the route of private Members' legislation. (KIE abstract)
