Re: The “Saatchi bill” will allow responsible innovation in treatment

It has been drawn to my attention, since responding to the criticisms of my paper, that Lord Woolf - the former Master of the Rolls and Lord Chief Justice - has an article published in today's (24th April) Daily Telegraph explaining his reasons for supporting the Saatchi Bill. As my learned friends would say, "I rest my case".
