Abstract

On 18 January 2002 the UK Court of Appeal overturned the decision of Justice Crane in Quintavalle. Justice Crane's decision that the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 (UK) does not apply to cloned embryos has already generated some attention and there is little doubt that the appeal decision will receive similar academic scrutiny. What we discuss is the resultant legislative regime in the UK and contrast it with that in Australia.
