HC Deb 02 August 1951 vol 491 c223W
71. Dr. King

asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider amending the Anatomy Acts of 1832 and 1871 in such a way as to make it easier for persons to bequeath their eyes for use after death to cure the sightless.

Mr. Marquand

I am advised that this matter is not governed by the Anatomy Acts but by common law.
