Jemma Dally represented the child in this important judgment dealing with parentage when treatment is started under the HFEA 1990 and then completed under the HFEA 2008. The President of the Family Division has confirmed that legal parenthood can be declared where consent and counselling are given under the old regime as long as the consent meets the criteria set out on section 37 HFEA 2008 and has not been withdrawn. In this case the parents signed an internal consent form to treatment and parenthood before 6 April 2009 and no WP and PP forms were signed for the treatment which was administered on the day the new law came into force.
