The Law Commission of England and Wales and the Scottish Law Commission have today published reforms for Government to improve outdated surrogacy laws. On Times Radio, Family Partner, Harriet Errington speaks with Jane Garvey and Fi Glover about why the reforms are urgently needed and the primary concerns with the current system. During the segment, Harriet reflects on the current laws in place in England and Wales and provides an overview of The Law Commission's recommendations for a robust new system to govern surrogacy that offers clarity, safeguards and support – for the child, the surrogate and the parents who will raise the child (“the intended parents”).
