bill presented: Mitochondrial Replacement (Public Safety) (1 Sep 2014)

Jim Dobbin: As a former NHS scientist, I would like to speak in support of the motion proposed by the hon. Member for Congleton (Fiona Bruce). Whatever our personal views on the ethics of mitochondrial transfer, it is remarkable from a procedural point of view that the Government are considering putting these regulations before the House before the critical pre-clinical tests by their own body, the...

bill presented: Mitochondrial Replacement (Public Safety) (1 Sep 2014)

Jim Dobbin: I understand the hon. Gentleman’s point, but may I refer him to Dr David King, director of Human Genetics Alert? He is sympathetic to this process but fears that science is racing ahead of ethics. He says that we are in danger of creating designer eugenic babies, and we do not know where we are going in future. Denying Parliament the opportunity to examine these results seems difficult to...

Mitochondrial Transfer (Three-Parent Children) (12 Mar 2014)

Jim Dobbin: The head of the United States Food and Drug Administration advisory committee on this matter, Evan Snyder, has said that there are not enough clinical data to suggest that mitochondrial transfer is safe. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the present UK regulator and the UK Government should be cautious in approaching this technique?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Co-operative and Social Enterprise (Development) (11 Mar 2014)

As both a Labour and a...
