HC Deb 09 March 1993 vol 220 c495W
Mr. Ernie Ross

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the objectives are of her organ donor campaign; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Sackville

There arc many patients whose lives could be saved or enhanced by an organ transplant. The Government aim to encourage more people to consider organ donation. We have, therefore, commissioned a television campaign to provoke discussion on donation in the hope that more people will carry the donor card, and more importantly, let their families know of their wishes.
