Transplant of Human Organs Bill — 16 Mar 2001

Dominic Grieve MP, Beaconsfield did not vote.

Order for Second Reading read.

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

Official statistics show that, over the five years from 1995 to 1999, about 1,000 patients died in this country while on the waiting list for an organ transplant. The British Medical Association, to which I am indebted for its support and advice on this matter, would go beyond that and say that the figure understates the number of people who died for lack of an organ transplant operation. More people died who were not yet on the waiting list, and one must also consider the thousands of people who die because dialysis facilities are not available.

Question put, That the Bill be now read a Second time:--

The House divided: Ayes 12, Noes 0.
