Motion text

That this House recognises that there are currently 1,600 people waiting for a life-saving bone marrow transplant in the UK; understands that the growing number of people on the bone marrow register is critical to meeting this transplant need; further understands that young people make the best bone marrow donors; supports the work of the voluntary Register and Be a Lifesaver programme run by Anthony Nolan and NHS Blood and Transplant in providing educational sessions in schools and colleges which provide information to young people about how to become a bone marrow, blood or organ donor; and calls on the Secretary of State for Education to consider the ways in which such educational sessions can be made available in every school or college in England to ensure every 16 to 18 year old understands how they can become a potential life-saver by joining the bone marrow register.
