AFLA welcomes surrogacy law review
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.”
