§ Mr. Kinsey
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will set up an inquiry into the incident of 26th June at Dudley Road Hospital involving a decision to attempt a kidney transplant from an accident victim without the consent of next of kin who were not available, the object of such an inquiry being to recommend a clearer code of practice to apply in similar circumstances.
§ Mr. Alison
I have asked the regional hospital board for all relevant information about the case. The need for an inquiry is one of the matters to be considered when this is available.
