 In X v Z [2022] EWFC 26 a parental order was granted under section 54 Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 regarding a surrogacy arrangement undertaken in 1998, meaning that the ‘child’ involved was an adult at the time of both the application and the making of the order. This represented a novel issue for judicial consideration, and the judgment provides striking evidence of the extent to which the statutory conditions for parental orders ‘are being stretched to their limits, or simply cannot be applied’ (Joint Consultation Paper, 2019, para. 11.2).
