HC Deb 07 November 1979 vol 973 c184W
Mr. George

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will introduce legislation to prohibit the sale, export and import of human remains.

Mr. Nott

The sale of human remains breaches most people's concept of decency and good taste and offends against many people's religious principles. I hope that legislation will not prove necessary to stop such a reprehensible practice.
