Motion text

That this House urges honourable Members this Christmas to sign up to the NHS Organ Donor Register at www.nhs.uk/organdonor, to carry donor cards and make sure their families know their wishes, and to encourage their constituents, famly and friends to do the same; notes that nearly 7,000 people are waiting for an organ transplant while only 15 per cent. of people are on the organ donor register; regrets the fall in the total number of cadaveric organ transplants during 2000; deplores the fact that the UK and the Republic of Ireland have one of the lowest European donor rates at 13.4 per million population; supports the call from the Transplant Partnership for a single, comprehensive piece of legislation covering all aspects of organ donation; and urges the Government to act quickly to review the laws on organ donation to provide a legal framework within which organ donation can prosper and more lives can be saved.
