dc.descriptionResearch on embryos Cloning Finally, issues such as licensing of facilities, qualifications of staff, conditions of storage of embryos and other human reproductive material, optimum number of treatments in an individual case, testing of infectious diseases, record keeping and data collection will also need to be considered. What is of major concern for me ultimately is that the best and most appropriate regulatory framework is put in place. I have every confidence in the ability of the Commission to deliver a report which would provide the basis for informed public debate, before the finalisation of any policy proposals. In this sense the work of the Commission is very much the first essential step before policy proposals are brought forward. It is clear that the application of science to the human reproductive sphere has brought with it many benefits. For example allowing couples who have difficulties in conceiving to have children. Techniques such as in-vitro fertilisation, the freezing and storage of sperm and artificial insemination by donor are available in Ireland and have undoubtedly enhanced the quality of life for many people. It is vital that such techniques are conducted within an appropriate regulatory framework which safe guards the interests and dignity of all concerned, and ensures that quality standards are in line with best practice. It is also however clear that the ability of science to intervene in control, or even alter the natural process of the creation of human life poses fundamental ethical problems for all of us.en
