Mr Robinson also spoke about Emma Johnson, whose son Max was saved by a heart transplant and has been the focus of a campaign by the Daily Mirror newspaper to change the law.

“Max is still doing well now. Last September he went back to school part-time and they’re hoping next year that he’ll be back at school full-time,” said Mr Robinson.

“Even more pleasing on the Max story is something I didn’t know, and was brought to my attention by the member for North Devon, who represents the donor family, the Ball family, whose daughter Keira was killed in a terrible car crash, the most unfortunate incident, who gave her heart.

“Max’s mum, Mrs Johnson, was saying how much she looked forward to meeting the family. She said ‘I wonder what they’ll feel when they put their hand on Max’s heart and feel their daughter’s heart still beating there’.”
