This analysis piece discusses the court's decision in Re Z not to read down s 54 (2) of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 so as to allow single parents to apply for parental orders following surrogacy. The paper sets this in the context of the way the courts have interpreted other requirements laid down in s 54 and comments on the proposed inclusion of surrogacy in the Law Commission's next law reform programme.
