Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill

Explanatory Notes

Territorial extent and application

24 This Bill extends to England and Wales and Northern Ireland, however, as is clear from the text of the amendments to section 3 of the 2004 Act in Clause 1, the deemed consent provisions only apply in respect of activities carried out in England. Clause 2(2) and (3) will apply in Northern Ireland so the consent of the Northern Ireland Assembly will be sought, once it has been restored.
