§ Mr. Butterfill
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he is satisfied with the design of the leaflet all blood donors are required to read before giving blood; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
Yes. In recent months we have revised the content of this leaflet to strengthen its message and to extend the categories of persons in AIDS high-risk groups who should not donate blood. This revised leaflet "AIDS"—Important New Advice for Blood Donors" has been printed and issued to regional transfusion centres for their use.
