Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority/Human Tissue Authority (Transfer of Functions)
Anne Milton (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Public Health), Health; Guildford, Conservative)
In “Liberating the NHS: Report of the arm’s length bodies review (2010)” the Department of Health set out its proposals for reducing bureaucracy and increasing efficiencies. This included transferring all functions from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and the Human Tissue Authority with a view to abolishing the two organisations by 2015. This consultation sets out options for taking this work forward. We welcome views and will use these to inform our thinking.
A copy of the “Consultation on proposals to transfer functions from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and the Human Tissue Authority” has been placed in the Library. Copies are available to hon. Members from the Vote Office and to noble Lords from the Printed Paper Office.
