The Law Commissions of England and Wales and Scotland have published their final recommendations for UK surrogacy law reform on 29 March 2023, suggesting new measures that they say will modernise surrogacy laws in the UK to make the process for intended parents more straightforward while attempting to safeguard the interests of the surrogate and the child.
