Welsh Affairs Committee publishes written evidence received on National Assembly for Wales (Legislative Competence) (Health and Health Services) Order 2011 relating to organ donation

The Chair of the Welsh Affairs Committee, David T.C. Davies MP, said:

"Following the referendum in Wales on 3 March the LCO’s were withdrawn by the Welsh Assembly Government before we were able to start our oral evidence sessions. No purpose would have been served by our continuing our inquiry. However, due to the public interest generated by the LCO relating to organ donation, we considered it would be valuable for the written evidence submitted to us to be made publicly available. We have therefore published the written evidence together with this Report. We hope that the National Assembly for Wales will give serious consideration to the evidence and that it will inform continued debate on the subject of presumed consent for organ donation in Wales."
