Complainant Name:
Ms Josephine Quintavalle of CORE (Comment on Reproductive Ethics)

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Times

Complaint:
Ms Josephine Quintavalle of CORE (Comment on Reproductive Ethics) complained that an article had inaccurately suggested that an appeal against the ruling preventing the creation of ‘designer babies’ was being lodged by a particular couple – who were seeking to select a test tube baby with the correct tissue type to treat their ill son – rather than the HFEA (Human Fertilisation and Embryo Authority). In fact, the sole appellants in the case were the HFEA, not acting on behalf of the family in question.

Resolution:
The newspaper undertook to amend its library records to reflect the point.

Report: 62
