AFLA welcomes surrogacy law review

07 Jun


PLANS to update and improve the law on surrogacy have been welcomed by the Advocates’ Family Law Association (AFLA).

Proposals for change were published in a joint consultation by the Scottish Law Commission and the Law Commission of England and Wales.

Ruth Innes, QC, acting Chair of AFLA, said: “The discussion paper on reform of the law governing surrogacy is to be welcomed. Certainty as to legal parenthood from birth, and protection of the interests of all involved in a surrogacy arrangement, are essential.”
