There are still some places available at this free-to-attend Progress Educational Trust (PET)/Scottish Government event, taking place this evening (Tuesday 24 September 2019) at the Royal Society of Edinburgh. To reserve your place)(s), register here now.
Doors will open, and food and refreshments will be served, at 6pm. The discussion proper will then take place from 6.30pm-8.30pm.
A map showing how to walk to the venue from Edinburgh Waverley railway station (which is nearby) can be found here.
Speakers will explore various problems - practical, legal and moral - that people currently have with the practice of surrogacy, in the UK and elsewhere.
Speakers will also ask whether and to what extent law reform - including wide-ranging reforms that are currently being proposed by the Law Commissions of England and Wales and of Scotland - can solve these problems.
In the PET tradition, much of this event's running time will be devoted to letting the audience put questions and comments to the speakers.
