*Re Z (A child) (No 2)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The Family Division made an order, based on a concession by all the parties that ss 54(1) and (2) of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 were incompatible with the rights of the applicant father and the second respondent surrogate child under art 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights taken in conjunction with art 8 of the Convention, insofar as they prevented the applicant from obtaining a parental order on the sole ground of his status as a single person as opposed to being part of a couple.
