Parental Orders: Lone Parents
To ask the Secretary of State for Health, with reference to the oral contribution of the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Health of 7 February 2017, Official Report, column 214, whether the Government plans to introduce (a) a remedial order or (b) an urgent remedial order to allow single parents to apply for parental orders.

The Government recognises the value of surrogacy as one of a number of options in helping people who can’t have children create a family.

Drafting work on the remedial order is ongoing. We currently estimate it will be laid in the autumn session of Parliament.

The Department supports the proposal by the Law Commission of England and Wales to include a project about surrogacy in its work programme for 2017-20.
