Consultation responses

The Nuffield Council on Bioethics has decided that, where possible, it will post consultation responses on its website. The Working Party has found the replies extremely useful and has considered all the responses.

In the spirit of openness, the Council has made these submissions available to the wider public. Only the submissions of those respondents who have given their consent have been made available.
