Embryonic Stem Cells And The New Scientist

EDM number 578 in 2001-02, proposed by Ann Winterton on 13/12/2001.

That this House welcomes the editorial on the 1st December edition of the prestigious journal, New Scientist, that the majority of bench scientists no longer think it is possible or practicable to treat patients with cells derived from cloned embryos; and, therefore, calls on Her Majesty's Government to end its support for experimental embryonic cloning and to divert its energy and resources into supporting the use of adult stem cells for the treatment of serious disease.

This motion has been signed by a total of 26 MPs.
