HC Deb 24 July 1979 vol 971 c123W
47. Miss Fookes

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will take steps to set up a national register of potential donors of kidneys and other organs suitable for transplant operations.

Dr. Vaughan

We shall be considering possible ways of increasing the supply of kidneys and other organs for transplants in the light of the recent survey on public attitudes towards kidney donation to be published next month. My right hon. Friend expects soon to receive the views of Lord Smith's working party on ways of improving the supply of organs for transplantations.
