§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Lord Privy Seal if any consideration has been given to the provision of a blood donor facility in the Palace of Westminster; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Biffen
This matter was last considered by the Accommodation and Administration Sub-Committee in 1980, when it was decided that no special provision could be made in the Palace of Westminster because of the lack of suitable accommodation which could be set aside for the transfusion unit. The north London centre of the blood transfusion service operates a two-day clinic in the Treasury once every six months when Members, their staff and staff of the House may give blood under arrangements made through the nursing sister.
