Prime Minister Brown Partially Caves On Bill

Most recent reports this evening have said that Prime Minister Gordon Brown has caved in to pressure within his cabinet and the weekend's barrage from the Churches, by saying that now Labour MPs will be allowed to vote according to their conscience on some aspects of the bill including the creation of human/animal hybrid clones, but continues to insist that they support it as a whole.

After weeks of insisting on complete support for the bill Brown said, "On the three issues where, for the first time, these ethical issues are being debated in Parliament in this new way - and that's so-called admix embryos, the second one is saviour siblings and the third one is IVF research - exercising your conscience will mean for Labour Party members a free vote."
