star this property answer text <p>There are conflicting media reports on claims of genetic modification in China. We shall continue to monitor the situation. We have had no discussion with the Chinese Government regarding the ethical issues and risks associated with the gene-edited babies born in China. The procedure alleged to have been carried out by Prof He Jiankui in China would be illegal in the UK. It would be an offence under the 1990 Human Fertilisation &amp; Embryology Act (1990 Act), punishable, on conviction, by a prison term of up to 10 years, a fine or both.</p> more like this
