Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill

Explanatory Notes

Parliamentary approval for financial costs or for charges imposed

36 A Money resolution for the Bill was passed on 11 September 2018. A Money resolution is required where a bill authorises new charges on the public revenue – broadly speaking, new public expenditure. The provisions in the Bill may lead to increases in public expenditure under other Acts, in particular under section 225 of the National Health Service Act 2006 which concerns the payment of sums by the Secretary of State to Special Health Authorities. NHS Blood and Transplant is a Special Health Authority and it is anticipated that its costs will increase as a result of the provision made by the Bill.
