Health Minister Jackie Doyle-Price has confirmed that the Government will support legislation that will mean people have to opt out of being organ donors.

Speaking to Mr Robinson, she said: “I’m very grateful to him for bringing this Bill and to confirm that the Government will give its wholehearted support.”

Ms Doyle-Price added that the Government would be referring to the changes as Max’s Law, after nine-year-old Max Johnson, who benefited from a heart transplant.
