The medical ethics section of the 1983-1984 annual report of the British Medical Association Council describes the Council's successes and continuing campaign against certain clauses in the pending Police and Criminal Evidence Bill and in the re-introduced Data Protection Bill that might require physicians to violate professional standards on informed consent and confidentiality. Other issues touched upon in the report include surrogate motherhood, in vitro fertilization, ethics committees, living wills, advertising, torture, consent to treatment, and the prescribing of contraceptives for minors.
