Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The Family Court held that, when s 54(1) of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 provided that, in certain circumstances, the court could make a parental order on the application of 'two people', it was not open to the court to make such an order on the application of one person. Section 54(1) could not be 'read down' in accordance with s 3(1) of the Human Rights Act 1998 so as to enable that to be done.
