I wrote my MP about the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill (or more accurately, CC’d him into the email we all, I trust, sent to those members of the House of Lords suggested by SPUC).
Today in the post I get this response, reproduced here in its entirety.
Thank you for your e-mail.
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill has been debated extensively in the House of Commons and I am sure will be debated equally thoroughly in the House of Lords. That said, I don’t agree with your analysis of what the Bill seeks to do.
However, I am grateful to you for having taken the trouble to write.
I’m not sure whether to be miffed at the startling lack of substance, or just be grateful he went through the motions of replying.
