To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what plans the Government has to lay before Parliament an urgent remedial order to allow single parents to apply for a parental order following surrogacy.
Answer (Philip Dunne)
The Government has made a commitment to bring forward a remedial order to allow a single person to apply for a parental order following a surrogacy arrangement and this will be delivered.
We expect to lay a non-urgent order in the House shortly, for scrutiny by the Joint Committee for Human Rights and Parliament.
