French Influence on Britain
Nature. 1985 Feb 21; 313(6004): 618.
The British House of Commons, overriding opposition by party leaders, approved Enoch Powell's bill which would ban all experiments on human embryos and restrict their use to therapeutic in vitro fertilization procedures. Some members of Parliament have urged the government to announce a timetable for its own, more comprehensive legislation based on the recommendations of the Warnock Committee Report. This action would erode support for Powell's bill, which Lady Warnock warns could end in vitro fertilization in Britain. (KIE abstract)
