HC Deb 26 July 1988 vol 138 c208W
Mr. Hannam

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has completed his consideration of the Hoffenberg report on the supply of transplant organs; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Currie

Further to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Tynemouth (Mr. Trotter) on 18 December 1987, at column934, we have recently issued for consultation a draft health circular on the provision of donor organs for transplantation. This implements the key recommendation of the Hoffenberg report. Health authorities, medical organisations and others with a particular interest in the subject have been invited to comment by 30 September 1988.
