HC Deb 13 July 1999 vol 335 cc148-9W
Mr. Levitt

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what response the Government have made to the British Medical Association's new guidelines on giving resuscitation to terminally ill patients. [90442]

Ms Jowell

The Department is aware that the British Medical Association have indicated an intent to revise their guidance on Decisions Relating to Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation which was issued jointly with the Royal College of Nursing in association with the Resuscitation Council (UK) in 1993. However, the revision has not yet been published and we are therefore unable to comment on it.
