Sharon Hodgson: I thank my hon.

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: Yes, and I had not noticed that nobody from the Scottish National party is here. I do not know what the situation is in Scotland, but we still want people there to be organ donors. I am sure that Rebecca, the daughter of my hon. Friend the Member for Sunderland Central, would not refuse a kidney, whether from Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland or anywhere, so that is a very good point.

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: Excellent. I am really grateful to my hon. Friend for updating us all on the situation in Scotland because, as I said, I was not aware of it. I commend that Bill and hope that our SNP friends up in Scotland will act on and progress it as soon as possible.

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: Families are at the heart of this, as my hon. Friend the Member for Coventry North West, who is promoting the Bill, made clear, and I am sure that the Minister will as well. It is important that families’ voices are taken into consideration when these discussions take place. I know that I am not alone in this House in carrying a donor card and being on the register. Like many other...

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: My hon. Friend has made exactly the right point. This does not apply only to, for instance, kidney and heart transplants; it applies to the whole donor register. The Government must listen to the concerns of black and Asian communities, not just during the consultation but beyond, so that we can develop a solution to this problem.

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: Absolutely. I think that schools are an ideal forum for a number of public health awareness messages on a host of issues to be delivered to young people. Perhaps the solution to all these concerns has been developed in the two countries where the opt-out system is working well, Wales and Spain. In Wales, the system came into force in 2015. The law sets out that those who live and die there...

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: That would be great. Even the most technophobe of us should be able to manage doing that if it takes only two minutes, and maybe there could be one of those clever apps to make it even easier for all the young people to do this.

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: Yes, very good, and I must apologise for not commending my hon. Friend on his Bill when I listed the people who had done work on this over the years. That makes us realise how many people have been pushing for this, and if my hon. Friend the Member for Coventry North West is successful today, his great achievement will be following in many other Members’ footsteps. Whether it is clever...

Member for Basildon and Billericay (Mr Baron) for securing the debate. He is not in the Chamber, but I also want to thank him for the excellent contribution that he has made to the work of the all-party parliamentary group on cancer for...

Disabled People and Economic Growth: Cancer Strategy (22 Feb 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: It is an absolute pleasure to see my hon. Friend in his place. Long may he stay there. Cancer is, understandably, a very emotional topic. One in two people in the UK will be affected by cancer in their lifetimes, and, as we have heard from almost everyone who has spoken today, we have all been affected in some way ourselves. When my children were very small, I lost my mother-in-law to breast...

Sharon Hodgson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds North West (Alex Sobel) for securing this important debate, and for his excellent and entertaining speech; I do not think that we have heard rap quoted in here before. He recently took over from me as co-chair of the all-party parliamentary group on basketball, and he is doing a sterling...
